Destination - X marks the spot... WINNER

 Oh how I love Mo Manning's images!  I had a good time putting this card together.  The image was printed twice so I could layer the head, hat and the pewter cup for dimension   The panel with the raindrops was embossed after stamping and I blanket stitched the top and side of the focal panel with waxed linen.  All the underlying panels were edged with Distress Inks

DP2 #149 - Distressing
2 Sisters #106 - Elves, Gnomes & Pixies TOP THREE

IMAGES:  The focal image is by Mo Manning at Digital Pencil Too; "Destination" is a self inking "Mini Word"; "Water Droplets" is a texture stamp from Designs by Ryn

EMBELLISHMENTS: Sentiment tab and frame are from a Stampin Up  punch; purple waxed linen thread (Volcano Arts) used for stitching and wrapped around the map; metal tag and large metal brad from my stash.
