Thursday Challenges


I don't think that I am ready for Hallmark, but I do think that I would rather make a masculine card than pay $4.00 for one! Masculine cards are so hard for me to make! Hubby's b'day is Saturday and I have been struggling with what to make and to give as a gift. He never wants for anything- typical male, as he needs something he just goes and buys it.

This card is for 2 challenges:
Color Throwdown #63- kraft, olive, cocoa and honey

Twisted Thursday #28- use the sketch provided and to use something metal or a metal tag on your card (that's the twist!)

I cut the star out of a metal sheet that I picked up years ago, cut with the Cricut and embossed on the cuttlebug. The leaves were cut, again, with the cricut, the patterned paper is really old Flair and the cardstock is all CTMH.

Off to do some virtual shopping for saturday!
