Happy Birthday

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Verve and PTI Daily Design Sentiments; PTI Twine; Ranger Inks and Canvas; PTI Woodgrain Impression Plate

A Passion for PaperTrey and Wee Memories are both hosting a challenge for the men in our life.  I certainly have my share :) so I can always use more cards for my guy card stash!  I am adoring my PTI impression plates. I'm not sure why I waited so long to get them, but they have been getting a work out from me. I kept this card nice and clean.  Woodgrain impression plate with a bit of Ranger Antique Linen ink. I stamped some leaves on canvas using a couple of different colors of ink, fussy cut them and attached them with some twine.

that inked woodgrain is da bomb! Love how it makes the impression really stand out :) And sweet little canvas leaves...perfection :) Had to laugh because I had a dream that I had to sneak back into your house to store something, but didn't want anyone to hear me because I was supposed to be gone. I think the move is getting to me!! LOL One night down, 60 to go! LOL

Why do I always think of masculine cards when I see fallish colors? I guess they are more earthy or something.....anyway, I love the simplicity and of course the color on the leaves!

Aimes said...

Oh I think I *need* that woodgrain impression plate, don't I? I love the way you've inked it - it brings so much more character to a fabulously rustic, autumnal beatuy!
