Celebrate the Happy Voyage

Here's a card for today's post. I think it's kinda manly, so I will be giving  it to my dear husband on his birthday. He doesn't read my posts, so he won't see it till he opens it. LOL. I used the old compass rose stamp from 100 Proof Press. I have lots of ideas for this stamp and you'll see it in future 100 Proof Press design posts.

To make this card I layered patterned papers including dots and a map, then came all the stickers like the word  "voyage" and "celebrate the past". The stamping came next of the compass rose, its not perfect but it adds to the vintage feel. A layer of postage stamps, a happy ticket and gold foil travel images are the next step. A touch of gold Stickles and edging ink and this little card was all set to sail away to my husband's birthday.

Hope you will start a happy voyage this week.
take care, gerri
