Authentique Paper, Freshly Made Sketches, Stamper's Best and Operation Write Home


Yes - blogger is behaving tonight - it quickly uploaded.  I do hope this continues - makes posting cards and my creative life much less frustrating.

This card is for several challenges.  It is based on the weekly sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
The other challenge is the monthly challenge on Stars and Stamps - Operation Write Home's card blog.  This challenge is sponsored by Our Daily Bread Designs.  For every 25 cards made - they will pay for the shipping on a box of handmade cards to our heroes.  They will pay for a maximum of two boxes.  I do wish we had more sponsors like that.  The challenge this month is to make a masculine card.

I do like how the card turned out.  I just bought a new pad of paper by Authentique because it had great masculine colors.  The stamp is by Stamper's Best.  I used some Spellbinder's dies to cut out the image and mat for the image.  The sentiment is a $1 stamp I bought somewhere.  I know it will get lots of use.  The image and sentiment are pop dotted.  I did a little distressing on the edges of some of the paper.

Everyone enjoy the remainder of your evening.

Nice masculine card! I like the color combination. I have the same sentiment stamp and believe I found it in the dollar bin at Michael's ;)
I bought it for use on OWH cards.
