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.
