I decided to do yet another card for the Challenge at Off The Wall Craftiness! Did I tell you that the prize is an assortment of bakers twine from The Twinery? How awesome is that?
My card base is ivory with a top layer of distressed green from Basic Grey. I created a panel of Soft Suede card stock stamped with a coffee background stamp from Hampton Art Stamps. The fancy edges of my sentiment, are an unmounted corner stamp I have had for years. Not sure where it or the UM sentiment are from, but I love the way they created a different shape when they were put together. The corner stamp was embossed in gold and colored in 2 Copic shades of brown. The sentiment was stamped in Cottage Ivy from Memento. I added a large take out cup of beverage from Rupa Shevde's set called My Cuppa Joe, which can be found at Gina K. Designs. A couple wraps of jute twine and some gold sticky beads, and I think I created a manly card for an under the weather gent.
I must also acknowledge this special badge I received from my sweet friend Carol, over at Our Little Inspirations. She is such a talented person, so please go pay her blog a visit. She is full of wonderful ideas! I know I am suppose to tell you 7 unknown facts about myself before passing this on, but you would start snoring.....! Please help yourself or take it to pass to a friend. I love all of my blogging buddies!
We are suppose to experience record high temps the next few days, here in PA! DH has taken a couple days off, and maybe we can get a bit of outside work completed before winter. Whatever you have in mind, have a wonderful Sunday.
