Where I Live Card

Joined a new swap group on FB and this was for one of the first swaps I participated in.  We had to create a card that reflected where we live.  This was a little challenging as I wanted a usable card...

Here's the details - 
Papers:  I printed a Virgnia map for the background, I converte it to sepia in Photoshop, tore the edges, and inked with Burnt Umber Cat's Eye Chalk Ink
Extras:  Stampin' Up Bird punch, small heart punch (for the dogwoods), champagne rhinestones, and gray pearls.  

I really like the cardinal.  I found the directions for it here.

I hope my partner likes it.  I can't wait to see her's, she is from New York.

Beautiful card and love the background paper in Sepia and how you have used a brad with the tag to mark your location.
