Masculine Thank You with Traveler

Pin It Now! I have so many thank you notes to write this week!
My 13 year old son was in the national finals at Disney for the Christopher Columbus Awards, and was treated like royalty for a full week.  Preparing for finals week has been a huge process, so this card will go out to everyone who helped - financially, emotionally, and otherwise!  

Here are the guys. CJ is on the right.
CJ loves this card, it has plenty of guy-ishness.  Traveler has been my new favorite stamp set since it was available for preorder, and this new paper, Typeset, is thin and ever so vintage looking!  

I stamped the globe image onto watercolor paper and used an Aqua Painter to lift color off of the inkpads and paint the globe, using Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, and Hello Honey.  Sponged the edges with Hello Honey.  The ribbon across the front is Mossy Meadow 3/8" Stitched Satin, and it's AWESOME.  Very shiny!

Who'd have thought I'd love these new In-Colors so much?  They are so rich and usable!
