Other card submitted to Paper Crafts

So here is the other card that didn't make it into Paper Crafts, but since they really are quite speedy over there at letting us know (which I so appreciate!), I can enter it into the Moxie Fab Map to Your Heart challenge.

I used an old New York State map (which I don't need anymore now that my parents live down here) for the background as well as for piecing onto the cassette image which is from Sweet Stamp Shop's Old School Rock set.

Although I still have a few mix tapes that I haven't been able to part with, most of us use CDs now, so I thought it would be a great idea to create a CD sleeve/card. I also pulled the sewing machine out for this project....still not quite comfortable with sewing on my projects, but I want to be, so I'm going to keep working at it.

Supplies Used (CTMH Unless Specified)
Paper: NYS Map, White Daisy, Crystal Blue, Brown Bag
Ink: Black, Chocolate
Stamps: Sweet Stamp Shop Old School Rock
Other: Sewing Machine, Pewter Brads, Piercing Tool, Black and Red Zig markers
