You Rock!!!

Today I am here to share this card, I made for my husband for his B'day. Its on 24th...I know I know...I still have plenty of time but my August is packed like crazy....lots of commitments. As soon as I saw the colors at The Play Date Cafe and Terri's wonderful sketch at Skipping stone (love their stamps- thou don't own any yet:) I had this picture in my mind and Oh am super glad cos the effect is exactly like I wanted. Talking about masculine card..well that's the theme at A Passion for Papertrey.

 For my card I started with white card base. I gave a washed watercolor effect with distress inks (faded jeans, scattered straw, pumice stone), its a lovely effect. I then stamped the PTI stamp using these 3 colors together.


Distressed the edges and adhered this to the smokey shadow card base. To finish some hand stitching and a star eyelet.
