Wish you were here

Good morning!  Today I've got a clean-and-simple card to share with you that was inspired by two different challenges running right now (see the bottom of the post for links to the challenges so you can play along too!)  First, I saw the CAS-ual Friday's challenge that had to do with maps, and I immediately thought of the geotag stamp that I had just bought from Ormolu.  I thought it would be a cute twist on the "checking in" phenomenon to kind of say that you wished someone else could be checking in with you, so I got out my handy Paper Smooches alphabet.

I was also inspired by the Black and White challenge at the blog for Shop Pumpkin Spice, and I thought it went really nicely with the CAS feel I would need for my mapquest challenge, so I combined them!  I stamped out my sentiment and geotag in black ink and then added some black gems at the top corner for balance.  I matted that on some shiny black paper I had in my stash, and then put it all onto a white card base. 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
CAS-UAL Fridays- MapQuest
Pumpkin Spice Blog- Black and White
