Happy travels.

I had a terrible night last night. Just couldn't sleep. So what else was there to do but get up and do a card challenge! LOL! (yawn).

 Over at the Male Room, the challenge is to make a Masculine Retirement Card.
I pulled out my World Map Background Stamp and went to work.

I also used stamps from You're Amazing, Postage Due, Teeny Tiny Sentiments."way to go" is from a retired SU set.

I liked the film framelits from the On Film Framelits set in the All Occasions Catalogue and also added a bit of metallic "bling" with small silver brads and an essential hardware clip.

Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Brown Sugar, Soft Sky, Smoky Slate and black.
Ink: black
Punch: Ticket Punch, Postage Stamp

All in all, I think this card could be used for any occasion. Just change the sentiment: Best Wishes, Congratulations, Happy Birthday. It would work well with any of these.

Hope you have a good weekend. I'm hoping for a better nights sleep myself.
Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from you.

If you want to join in the Male Room Challenge is still going. Why not pop over and check it out.

More beautiful products to show from the new 2021 Occasions Mini Catalogue today. The Fine Art Floral Suite is soooooo pretty. It does inclue Gilded Leafing Embellishment to add that touch of gold to your creations...but what if you love the look but not the time or work it takes? Have a look at the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate!!! This acetate goes over some of the designs on paper. So you can achieve the 'touch of gold' in record time! I LOVE IT!
