Share an Oldie on Friday - Munro Bagging!

Good morning!

Wow it's been ages since I was organised enough to post an oldie for Friday!  If you haven't heard of 'Sharing an Oldie' it's something Erika at Snappycrafts started where we can share some of our older creations.  It's a great way of looking back and comparing how our crafting styles might have changed over time!

This card isn't all that old I made it earlier in the year for a commission but I didn't post it at the time.  The spec I was given for the card was a retirement card for a lady who enjoys Munro Bagging (Munros are Scottish mountains over 3000ft and the 'bagging' is having climbed them and ticked them off your list).  It was really difficult to find an image of a lady climber/hillwalker without it looking too comical.  In the end I decided to make a colourful map of some of the Munros the focal point of the card with a couple of small images of boots and a compass from Little Claire coloured with Promarkers added to tie in with the walking theme.

I've added a Computer generated sentiment, gingham paper and a matching brad.  This was a tricky commission to get right but hopefully the recipient was happy with it!

Have a great weekend folks whatever you've got planned!
