Dare To Get Dirty...several of them....!

I have combined several challenges into this one card for some of the Dare to Get Dirty '08 challenges!!

I wanted to do a masculine card for Michelle's challenge, because I had the Old Truck from Little Paper Shop and that would be perfect for a masculine card. RIGHT!?

So then I thought, why don't I watercolour it so then I could combine the two challenges, in which Christine's challenge was watercolouring??

When I was trying to figure out which colours to use I thought of Lauren's challenge today which was a monochromatic scheme - varying shades of the same colour! Brilliant........ I'll throw that in too!

Of course, how do I lay it out?? Well. Perfect! Today is the sketch challenge!!

How thmart am I??! LOL! Never mind that it took me all day.....

The cardstock is Prism cardstock and the designer paper is Basic Grey Periphery.

I stamped the Cornish Heritage Farms houndtooth backgrounder on one of the strips in Ranger distress ink - Old Photo to be exact. While I had it out, I sponged all around the edges with Old Photo ink.

I don't know what paper the star paper is - but it is bee-yoo-ti-ful!! The stars are raised and embossed and gor-gi-o-so!!

I added some Basic Grey Periphery buttons to the upper corner and some Gina K MANLY brads down the skinny strip of Basic Grey Periphery!

And, why else would you send a man a card - for his birthday of course!! Sentiment is from Little Paper Shop also!

If any men are reading this........I'm sure there are lots of other reasons to send you a card.....I was just joking--K?


  1. What a great card!! Any man would love to have this!!!!

  2. Great masculine card! I love the stars on the paper and the cluster of buttons. Fabulous job!
