AND NOW, a FUN Travel / Journey CARD using a fabulous Frantic Stamper New USA MAP DIE. and created in honor of today's Featured Stamper Challenge FS430, over at SCS;  They are featuring our Mousey friend, Karin Van Eijk.  She is such a sweetheart and a loyal follower of my blog and of HMFMC.  Her work is not only creative but gorgeous too, so I just had to find the time to CASE a card of hers.  Click HERE to see her fun masculine card that I chose to CASE.  The following is my take on it...

So what did I keep the same?  What Did I Change?
I've kept the same layout, main idea and the masculine take. Changed the BG, changed colors, left out stamped image and ribbon to use cutting dies instead.
This fab Jet-Set DP Collection came with Travel Stickers so I used the Compass and Arrow. Also added some random little jets that I've punched out with an EK Success Jet Punch. All cuts are multi-layered for a dimensional look. What do you think
