Well done

We found an old unused atlas the other day and I knew it would be perfect for making cards.  LOL!  I tend to be directionally challenged.  Seriously!  I am the type that goes by landmarks and street names.  But please don't tell me to go east or west....when you do you just get a blank empty stare. LOL!

Well I made this card for Samuel, he loves planes and I had to use the atlas paper.  =)   I used the solid plane from Papertrey Ink and then I added a little bit of Copics to make the plane a little more vibrant.  Love how it looks.  I distressed the edges of the map with vintage how it turned out.  I used a strip of Basic Grey - Basic Kraft at the bottom along with some Chocolate Twine from my Etsy shop and some vintage buttons to add a little interest to the bottom of the card.  I used the tiny attacher on the twine and love how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget about the challenge list below.



Sharing the Love:  And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.  Psalm 40:3

This is so creative and fun! Love the string and button embellishments! The strip of map at the bottom of the page is a great finishing touch.
