Sending Many Thanks ~ SC 110

It's time for another Stampin' Celebration Inspiration challenge, and I am loving this cool collection of photos.  It makes me long for for a day at the beach.
My card uses the SU World Map background stamp.  I've wanted this stamp since before it was released, but didn't get it until recently when a friend was cleaning out her stamp room and asked me if I wanted it.  Ummm, YES please!  :)  I think it will be a great background for many masculine cards.  

The stamp was inked with the new Tip Top Taupe (In-Color) and then sponged with blues and greens to create an old world colored map.  I just love it!  To finish it off I used a bit of linen thread and two tags with some candy dots.  It almost a one layer card, but has so much interest because of the background stamp.

Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush, Lost Lagoon, Mint Macaron
Paper: Very Vanilla, Vellum Cardstock
Accessories: Linen Thread, 1/16" Circle Punch, Regals Candy Dots, Tags & Labels Framelits
