June 14, 2011

This week the challenge on ColorQ has a masculine feel. I always keep it CAS (clean and simple) for masculine cards. :) I had just a 5.25" x 3.5" rectangle of Bordering Blue left in my stash!
Although I didn't do this on purpose... Tonight I was looking back over [my usual sites'] challenges for the week and realized this card works for the sketch over on Stamping 411! I think I'll do another card with this sketch, because it's right up my alley - obviously! LOL

Stamp Sets: Birthday Bliss
Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Cajun Craze
Paper: Basic Gray, Cajun Crase, Bordering Blue, Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White
Tools: 1 1/4" Square punch, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Tearing Edge
Embellishments: Designer Buttons - Basic Gray, Whisper White and Cajun Craze; crochet thread

Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!
