Cards In Envy

Hello and happy Monday!
It's the first Monday of the month, that means there is a new challenge up on the Cards In Envy Blog!
Todays challenge is: Make it manly. I always have such a hard time with guy cards, so this was a challenge for me! LOL!
 I decided to use Echo Park's This & That Collection. I fussy cut the Whitlock Bay card off one of the papers, added a bobber sticker, stitching and also wrote my sentiment with a white gel pen on my black banner:

 
My Dad has a birthday this month, so this was a perfect challenge for me!
 
Remember, that for the Cards in Envy challenge, we only accept A2 cards (4.25"x5.5") that are relatively flat to fit in a first class envelope for regular postage.  That means no lumpy, bumpy cards.
 
If you play along with this challenge, be sure to link it up on the Cards In Envy Blog!

  9. I love the stitching detail! The colors work really well together to add to the "watery" feel of the fishing boat image. Nicely done!
