This theme used to fill me with horror - I used to dislike vintage so much but with The Open Sea from Stampin' Up it's easy, and just right for this week's new challenge over in The Male Room.

There is a gorgeous sailing galleon that is just begging to be made vintage and teamed with the old style World Map looks great - take a look

  1. Stunning masculine card!

    ps - sorry I missed getting my card on time -- it is all loaded up and also on my blog.

  2. We are a right pair, with our aversion to vintage, but I think we did it justice this time, no mean feat for a masculine card!

  3. This is beautiful! I love the dp you used. I think vintage is up to interpretation in the crafting world...I struggling with it too. Great inspiration card for the challenge :o)

  4. It's a great set for male cards isn't it? The world map is a super addition too - I can see I'll be adding it in to my next order!

  5. Love the rich, warm colour and that fabulous ship. I really like your vintage card - you rocked it!
