Every Saturday there is a new challenge on the Card Ideas blog. This week the challenge is "for the boys". Great challenge since I struggle with manly cards. I used the beautiful new Windsong image available at Designed2Delight, thought it was a perfect image for a masculine card. Faith has released several new manly images recently, check them out in the D2D digi store.

My sketch comes from Tracy at Eat, Sleep, Stamp. It is her Sketchy Thursday #126. She has a fantastic blog with the nicest sketches posted each week, it you haven't seen them, go and check it out!

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope your weekend is going well. Going to fire up the grill tonight and cook some flank steaks. Even though we grill year round, I really enjoying grilling when it is nicer outside.

Card Recipe:
Image: D2D Windsong, Verve sentiment
Paper: PTI ssw, Kraft, Night of Navy, DCWV Nantucket stack
Ink: Printer, Real Red
Embellishments: copics, stickles, nesties, MS border punch, dimensionals, Anchor brad from Michaels

Kathy, I think this card is absolutely fabulous. It is the best masculine card I've seen in months. It has inspired me because I've got a lot of masculine cards to make in the next couple of months. I love this and can't wait to did out some images and case you and this card.
