So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
- Make a project for " That special Man in your life ".
- Or Make a project with the " Sketch ".
- Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Masculine card using the above Sketch ".
Know that old saying better late than never? Well, that's me this week! I had actually decided to take this week off from The Friday Mashup because I was feeling so bad, but after some new medicine and a night of sleep, I felt like stamping a little today. Holly has such a great challenge that I didn't want to miss out playing along. Now this will be my last card before I'm "officially" on maternity leave, but I still want to try and do some of the challenges if I can fit them in. It depends on how I'm feeling and then how recovery and motherhood go if that happens or not. I can't believe it's only 38 more days! Yikes! Anyway, on to the card, right?!
I pulled out some retired designer paper that I really need to
stop hoarding use up and the classic Lovely as a Tree stamp set. It's an easy choice for a masculine card. I did a bit of "thumping" on the tree to get in some different shades of green; one shade was just a bit boring. :) It's a pretty simple card, but it's hard to go all out with embellishments when you are doing something for a man. Ribbon and bling just don't work without some serious creative effort!
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Woodgrain background
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Always Artichoke
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Whisper White, miscellaneous retired DSP

I hope you'll come play along with us this week! It's a great time challenge to get your Father's Day cards made before June hits!
