Masculine in Neutrals


I am submitting this card for two separate challenges...The first is for Play Date Cafe and their challenge involving neutrals. I love these colors and the inspiration picture this week. Please check it out. And my second challenge spot is at Speedy the Cat and their masculine card. I created an easel card using card stock from Gina K: ivory, brown, black and tan leather. I love this set by Stampin' Up entitled Travel Post....haven't used it a lot but should because I love the vintage elements to it. I sponged Versafine vintage sepia over the focal image on the tan leather paper and then sponged the twill ribbon. My hardware is also by SU. This is a very simple and quick card but I know all my male friends would appreciate it. Thanks for stopping by and checking it out...please leave a note.
