Happy 90th Birthday for a Guy

I was at a craft show yesterday - not a good one.  You get those every once in a while.  But what I did get was a special order to make 2 birthday cards for a gentleman who turns 90 years today.  I had to make them in a hurry because they called me last night and need them for noon today.
Here is one of them:

This gentleman is interested in old things and in gold and silver, so I envisioned a vintage card featuring an old map.
I used a basic black cardstock layered with Typeset Specialty DSP which I stamped on with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp and Soft Suede ink.  The edges were then distressed and inked with Early Espresso ink.

The World Map stamp was stamped on a piece of Whisper White paper and using a sponge dauber I sponged on Marina Mist where I saw bodies of water, and soft suede and old olive (I stamped off first) for the land.  Then the piece was cut into 3 equal pieces, the edges distressed, inked with Early Espresso, and mounted onto basic black card stock-which was torn to match the patterned pieces.  They were mounted onto the card slightly overlapping each other.

Hope they like the card.
I'll show you the second card in a separate post.
