However, the minute it became available I added it to my next order. That stamp was World Map. You can get this in either wood mount or clear mount and it's also available as an MDS download.

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I hope you are all enjoying this truly glorious fall weather! I have another card to share with you tonight. I saw another great color challenge across at dynamic duos and a fabulous sketch across at ART I didn't just do fulfil the color challenge at dynamic duos, I also managed to fit in the "dessert option" with wet embossing.
