Masculine Globe Birthday

A friend of mine requested a card for her brother.  She was rather specific about what she wanted.  You see, her brother is a geographer, collects globes, and travels the world.  She wanted something that would "go with all that". 

So, being without any specific globe stamps I turned to clip art.  I found this one that I thought I could use.  Printed it off and then watercolored it.  It was tricky as I could not color the printer ink.  Next, I sponged some Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Ranger) around the edges.  I then stitched around the panel with my sewing machine and then added the sentiment with brass brads. 

I really like the end result ... and she did too!  I'm so glad.  I am often very worried that others will not like what I create for them. 

Well, thanks for visiting.
