You Mean the World 2 Me

Don't you just love it when you go to create something and it comes together easily?  That's what happened with this card.  My dad is going in for surgery soon and I wanted to send him a couple of cards while he recovers.  This will be one of them.

The sketch at Mojo Monday this week is one of the reasons it came together so easily.  Whoever creates those sketches is a genius.  Each week is so different and yet so wonderful.  Have I mentioned lately how much I love sketches? 

Even though you probably know by now that I love banners, my favorite part of the card is the "world".   First I stamped the globe map from Open Sea in Bashful Blue, then I inked up the sentiment from Word Play with Early Espresso and Island Indigo and stamped over the map image.  I LOVE the results!

To add a little more texture to the card I curled the edges of my banners a bit and added ribbon and a mini library clip.  Are those little darlings still available?  I don't think so.  I've been kind-of hoarding them.  They are so super cute and I don't want to run out.  lol  But, my dad is worth it!

Creative Blessings,
Heather North
