It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC96. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.
For today's card I decided to start on my much needed manly birthday cards. I have several male family members with birthdays in the first three months of the year...ugh! Manly cards are never as fun to make, but I do like how this one turned out!
Textile Rectangles set from MFT...which comes with a coordinating die. I stamped the frame with Memento Rich Cocoa then stamped the sentiment with SU pacific point. The patterned paper is from my new October Afternoon Campfire pad and I used my diamond plate embossing folder on the kiwi kiss layer. I used my jumbo scallop dienamic on a piece of denim then stitched it into place. Is a card still considered masculine if there's a scallop on it??? Please tell me that's ok! LOL!! The ribbon is old SU brown felt and I added two corduroy brads.
The inside is decorated too so I could use the second half of the sentiment. I used the same colours and added a star border which I cut with my star border dienamic.
I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. The Sweet Sunday Stampers are saying goodbye to Joanne after this week. We're sad to see her go because her cards are always a delight, so be sure to pop by and leave her lots of love!
