Miss You Map

I was inspired by a few challenges this week.

The Male Room - Maps/Coordinates

Time Out - Photo - Home Sweet Home

Double D using neutrals - tan, cream, kraft, off white, etc. with texture

I started off by stamping the map from Concord & 9th with Memento Espresso Truffle ink on some thin cork.  Die cut a brown frame for a mat and then another frame from ivory cardstock which I covered with Versamark and heat embossed with Distress ep in Vintage Photo.  Used a cream piece of diamond embossed cardstock from Core'dinations and onto a base made from Gina K Sandy Beach.  Die cut a heart from kraft and distress with some brown ink.  Sentiment is stamped with Espresso Truffle, die cut the tag and sponged the edges with more Espresso Truffle.  Tied the tag onto the heart with some brown/cream baker's twine.

Thanks for taking a closer look!
