For the Guys

It's time for some more fun at Scrapy Land Challenges!  Our theme for the next two weeks is Anything Goes!  All you have to do is to create something using a die from one of the brands found in the store (see the following list).  Be sure and see all the inspiration from the DT and then enter for your chance to win!


My card today features the Pine Boughs die from Poppystamps.  I used some patterned paper from Paper Pizzaz and the image is from Stamping Up.  The button.....came off a pair of jeans!  No, I didn't "pop" it - the jeans were old and were a little too airy from all the holes so just trashed them!  Anyway........I did some distress ink sponging and colored the sky with Pan Pastels......very lightly. The red frame around the image was completed using a Spellbinders die called Deckled Edges.

Thanks for stopping by.........and be sure and check out Scrapy Land Challenges!

This is one awesome masculine card! I love that button accent but what most caught my eye were the edges on that red panel! That little touch of red perfectly showcases this image!

Wow you are my go to person today, Lynn. I need to make two male cards this week and my mind just would not go anywhere. Now that I've seen this terrific card, I think I'll case it at least for one of them. Love that touch of red and the jean button. Plaid paper always reminds me of a guy card. Have a fun day.
