Make it masculine

This week the {ippity} challenge over at splitcoast is to make a masculine card. Well, technically it's supposed to be a "boy" card, but all the boys around here are shaving already. I based my card on this weeks sketch (#47) at 2 Sketches 4 you and added my personal favorite challenge - no patterned paper. The background cardstock was embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder, sanded then inked with distress ink. The craft cardstock was inked with distress inks to give it a burnt edge look. I added some aged twill and stamped images from the {ippity} sets "Where You Should Be" , Just Wanted To Say" and the background stamp from "Love in Return"



Thanks so much for stopping by and for all the wonderful comments, they really brighten my day! Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!
