It's Time to Celebrate

Ryan gently reminded me the other night that I never have any boy cards in my card box.  So...when I saw the current Embellish Challenge, I thought the colors were perfect for a guys card.  At least now there will be one in my card box for a few days!  I went very CAS with my design using some new My Mind's Eye DSP and a Hero Arts sentiment. I added just a touch of green with Ranger Distress ink around the edges.  Love the way the stripes pop off the card!

Hope you have a fabulous Wednesday!

This is an awesome Man-card, Lynn! The patterned papers go so well together and the stamp is great too.

It's so hard to keep enough man cards in the stash!! Love that patterned paper and how you worked in the green with the sponging. Awesome!

Masculine cards are so hard but you did a great job putting this one together!! Great use of the colors and the buttons are a fabulous accent!

Cards for guys are tough and I suppose they're just not as fun to make as the girly, frilly ones, but you've done a beautiful job with this card, Lynn! Love those stripes!
