HA Manly challenge this week. Obviously the challenge is to make a male card - so I had a go. I decided that I would incorporate the sketch from Sketch and Stash Challenge as well. I really liked the sketch but as it had two flowers on it, wasn't too sure. But decided to have a go with some black/brown and white flowers.
The card stock is called Nutmeg and is probably a bit browner than the photo shows. The black background has been embossed with Devine Swirls Cuttlebug folder, a piece that I had done quite some time ago and had forgotten I had ( that's my old neglected item). My new things is the branch stamp from a new Hero Arts set - Sparkle clear From our House. I haven't used this stamp before. The three eyelets are also a forgotten item as I found them while looking for the flowers to put on this card. I really like how this turned out. I do find male cards a bit harder to do. I also like this sketch - but think for my next male card will use buttons instead of flowers. I have a male birthday card to do as a commission from someone at work, so have started to get some ideas.
Well it's time for me to head off to bed - busy day tomorrow at work. Thanks for calling by, take care.
