Thematically Thursday - CASE

I've been sporadic on my blog lately, but I've decided to try to do better. My life has been quite hectic but I always seem more able to function when I've had a little therapy with my papers, ink, and stamps.

This is Thursday - which on my blog means "Thematically Thursday" and because it's the fourth Thursday of the month, it's time to CASE a project. Honestly, these are some of my favorites - because I get to snoop around galleries and other places to see what catches my attention. This time I found my  inspiration in the SCS Gallery. Click here to see what I'm CASE'ing.

I knew I wanted to go with the world idea... and didn't find anything in my stash of stamps that quite worked with what was going on in my mind, so I googled "world globe images". WOW! I sure found a lot of options!!!

Here's the (first) card I made:

Isn't the world impressive? I did distress it a bit with black ink (since the card I CASE'd had ink distressing on it), but later I wondered if I should have done that or not. Oh well!

Like I said, I found a lot of world images and couldn't choose just one, so I chose a few instead.

This is the (second) card I made:

I like the way the globe has different landmarks on it - the Eiffel Tower, a skyline, the Statue of Liberty, the Pyramids, etc. Pretty impressive world we live in, isn't it?

Oh, and I also made a (third), (fourth), and (fifth) card, too, but I'll save them for another day.

Here's the inside of my card:
