Masculine Sketch

This Card was chosen as the A+ Winner at "Seize the Sketch"

Lesley has designed a great sketch for the Seize the Sketch challenge this week. Welcome to the new members of the DT, all the newbies have well known names and faces in the blogosphere. Looking forward to seeing their wonderful and inspirational cards.  This card uses the lovely color palette from the ColourQ  challenge.


The stamps are from Flourishes, the stencil from MFT and the embossing folder is Stampin Up. The compass was fussy cut from the map stamp. I rotated the sketch to accommodate this masculine themed card.


The color combo:

Hi Marie! TERRIFIC masculine card! I like the map & compass. If that's gold under the compass you should link this up at the ColourQ, your colors look right to me!
