Home on the Range

It's time for another challenge over at Stamps R Us Challenges!  You have two weeks to submit your entry. And now get this.....the theme is ANYTHING GOES!  We just can't get any easier than that - right!  And, not only is it an easy challenge with a theme like that but the prize is a "doozie"  (I think I just showed my age with that word... LOL)!  The winner will receive a Color Me Creative Copic Class of their choice!!!  So, come on over to Stamps R Us Challenges and show us your creation.

I've used In Wilderness (SU) for my card today.  I'm still working on the distressing bit and you'll see that I probably need more practice!  I think this will make a great card for a guy though as it's got that "manly" feel to it.  I used some DP from CTMH and Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla card stock from SU.  The brad in the center of the bow is also from SU.

Thanks for stopping by................and don't forget - The Dude Time Doodles Anniversary Scavenger Crawl will be coming up on Wednesday!!  So much fun going on.

Lynn, This card is perfect for a guy. I think that image (I also have it) can be difficult to work with at times, but you showcased it beautifully. I love your square papers and their placement. At first glance it looked like brick work. To me it really made the card. I think you did a very good job on the distressing. All around nice card. Thank you for sharing.

Love this really makes you think southwest. The colors, layout and the distressing are all perfect. Hmm....I don't have anything like this may just have to look at something different from flowers :)

What a great masculine card. Awesome image and design. Great colors and design too!

Marilyn said...

This is beautiful Lynn and a perfect 'guy card'! You have the ability to take an image with just ink and jazz it up with your paper choices and colours and ribbon. If I could do that, I would not have a fortune tied up in Copics!

Babette said...

This is a gorgeous masculine card. I always seem to struggle with masculine cards, but it doesn't look like you do. :)

NanaConnie said...

Lynn, you did a fabulous job on the distressing! I love the colors too! This card reminded me of our trip many years ago to Custer Park in SD...
