Going Global: I'm Lost Without You

Today I am playing along with the latest challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary.

They have a sketch challenge this week and I immediately knew which products I wanted to play with!
I love when it comes together that easily!

Here is their sketch.

All of the products I used today came from the Going Places Collection in the Occasions Catalog (pages 38-39).

I kept it simple with a Basic Black and Very Vanilla color scheme which I drew from my two designer papers.

I tried to keep it relatively "flat" for mailing ( I have someone in mind for this card, grin ) however, I think I large pearl, right in the center of the compass, would really finish this card off perfectly!  Or maybe just fill the center with a pool of Crystal Effects... I'll have to wait and see.

What do you think?  Pearl? Crystal Effects?  Leave it alone?
I'd love to hear your opinions :)

I hope you enjoy today's card and that I have inspired you to try it for yourself! I've posted my printable supply list for you below.
Don't forget, when your order reaches $50, you will earn an exclusive Sale-a-bration item, the Sky Is The Limit stamp set would pair wonderfully with this collection, for FREE!

  1. I think it might look kinda cool with Crystal Effects in the center of the compass. I really like the look of this card in black and white! Thanks for playing along with us at Create with Connie and Mary!

  2. What a great masculine card - I love the texture added by the embossing and the compass is really eye-catching. I agree with Jenny - Crystal Effects would look really neat in the compass centre, or even an epoxy sticker maybe? Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!

  3. What a striking masculine card! Great choice of papers and stamps with this layout - thank you for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!

  5. I love all of the detail here! So much texture and pattern and your simple color pallet ties it all together. I think it would be fine as is or with Crystal Effects. ;) Thanks for playing along this week at Create with Connie and Mary!
