One for the Guys

The DT challenge this week at Designed2Delight is to make a manly card without flowers. So I made a cute Father's Day card to give to my hubby. I went for a clean and simple look here, he doesn't really go for frou frou things.

I used the Midnight Madness sketch challenge #106. I went with the simple version of the sketch.

The image is called Fishing Valentine. I did add a touch of glitter to the hearts (lol, hope this doesn't make it girly). Hope you will join us and play along this week.

Card Recipe:
Image: Designed2Delight Fishing Valentine, sentiment from Verve
Ink: printer, Palette Noir
Paper: PTI ssw, Kraft, SU Always Artichoke
Embellishments: copics, stickles, MM brads, Verve dies

What a great CAS masculine card! I'm really a "more is more" kind of girl so I struggle to make cards like this. You're obviously a natural! Your image is just adorable the way the you colored it and I love the sentiment you paired with it. Great job with Priscilla's sketch. Hope to see you back again soon.
