Anyway, this card uses Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #97. Yet another one that I probably would've passed up before. But, I realized that you don't HAVE to have that circle in the middle...you can veer from it and do what you want. I think that's held me back a lot. Because most of the challenges I see, many of the cards are using nestabilities (die cutting machines) or the like to cut and emboss and since I don't have one, I don't think mine will come out as good. Another one of the many reasons why I am pushing myself!
I always need masculine cards and this seemed like the perfect sketch. Fairly simple, not a lot of extras needed. I pulled out my stash of scraps and was able to find some Basic Grey papers in there. Instead of the circle, I stamped PTI Star Prints on Scarlett Jewel, Aqua Mist and Spring Moss and adhered them to the card. The sentiment seems to be a great one as it could go for basically anything, although, I'll probably use it as a birthday card.
Have a happy Monday and I hope all of you are striving towards those goals you set for yourself less than 2 weeks ago! Keep up the good work if you are and Get Going! if you're slacking! :)
