One more masculine card challenge

I had a little time to play along with Betsy Veldman's challenge to create a masculine card using one of the color combos she posted here on her blog.
I used the first combination and made this card for my husband who will be turning 55years old.

I used PTI Enjoy the Ride, Get to the Point and Vintage Label stamp sets. You cant see it very much but I also used Woodgrain and the Linen Impression Plates for texture. I used brads for the lights and mirrors and used foam squares to raise the car the 55 and a couple arrows. The colors seem to be off ( the blues are a little more green. I will have to really start working on my photo skills this summer!)

The Colour Lover's web site is sooo cool and very helpful! I found a palette that I cant wait to go make my next card with. (I just went to the most loved color section and picked the most popular one! Cant go wrong with that!haha) A big THANK YOU to Betsy for sharing this site with everybody because I know I will use it a LOT!

Before I go I have 2 more quick quick Thank you cards I made. Used Year of Flowers:Lilly of the Valley, Fillable Frames, Kraft and Rustic Cream card stock, Chocolate Ink ,and tea dye duo and some Linen texture plates (both sides of it).

Very simple.

  2. Thanks Colleen for your sweet comments..I love both of your entries. I just bought the "Enjoy the Ride" set also. It looks like it would be fun to work with. Best of luck to you!!

  3. I love how you incorporated all the different stamps in your card. Another PTI lover as I can see from your choice of stamps. Thanks for the encouraging words.
