Very Vintage Challenge At Stamping Vacation

Happy Monday!
I am back today with my Design Team card for the Very Vintage Challenge over at the Stamping Vacation Challenge blog. This month the theme is

Torn Edges

This challenge is due by April 7th. All entries qualify as an entry in the monthly prize drawing. what is the prize you ask? It is a $25 gift certificate to the store of your choice!! You can enter as many challenges as you like as many times as you like. There is a different challenge everyday.

Now, as you know, I tear my edges quite a bit. So, what I did was challenge myself to use only torn edges. I tore all of the edges. Here is what I came up with.

The stamped images are: Map from Stamp Camp, Sailboat from Stamping Sensations.
Images were stamped with Brilliance Coffee Bean Pigment ink and embossed with clear powder.
DP: Provo Craft, Solid brown paper from Hot Off the Press
CS: Textured Tan from DCWV
I distressed all the edges with Vintage Photo ink from Ranger. Some detail shots for you.

This is a great masculine card. I think I will use this for my brother's birthday in April. I can add a sentiment on the inside and a little note.
A Few Challenges for Vintage Map and Boat:
The Stamp Man: Swirls and Curls
Anything Challenge: Distressing
Hope you are having a great day! Love ya.
