Bringing some happy...

Hi all, just a quick post today.  I needed to make a masculine card and the Color Throwdown Challenge #338 had the perfect colors,
this week, for a masculine card.  This card also qualifies for Simon Wednesday Challenge--make your own background.

The colors this week were teal, green, kraft and white.  This card is pretty self explanatory.  

Card Recipe:  Stampin' Up's card stock in Crumb Cake, Lost Lagoon, and Old Olive.  Gina K's Pure Luxury White card stock.  SU's Stripes and Chevron embossing folders, SU's Bitty Banners framelits and Hello You thinlits dies.  The birthday stamp is from PaperTrey Ink's Keep It Simple: Birthday Mini Stamp set, which was stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  To finish off the card, I added some twine.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I appreciate it very much.  

There is still time to enter both the CTD challenge #338 and Simon Wednesday Challenge and don't forget to stop by their blogs and see some awesome cards using these great colors and quite an assortment of different backgrounds.  Great places to visit if you are looking for inspiration!
