Manly Thank You

Here is a new card I made.  I made it for my neighbor who asked me for "a manly thank you card."

It also goes perfectly for Emma's Throwback Challenge over at My Creative Time.

Emma asked the project this week to be Cricut-less!! GASP!  
And she also wanted it to be a thank you project.

Here is what I came up with.

Here is the front of the Z-fold card.  A simple "Thank You" adorns the left side.

These metallic compasses are from a travel stack, DCWV, I think.  I hand cut them
and added a large black circle punch under the large compass.

I love the look of the leather paper with the little black photo corners. 

Thanks so much for visiting me here at CardsbyCG.blogspot.com.  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl

"Manly" cards are definitely the hardest to design, but you did an awesome job! :) And I'm really digging the Z fold too :) Thanks for sharing :)

That distressed look is really cool...is the paper or did you do some special technique?

I hope your neighbor enjoys,
