I needed to make a masculine birthday card last week (I know what you're thinking..."so where is it?" lol!), and this is what I came up with. When I got to this point, I started thinking about what else I could add.... I was going to tie a bow and adhere it to the bottom of that ribbon and use some dew drops on the sentiment. Then I sat back and took a good long look at my card and realized it was soooooo not a masculine card. LOL. So, rather than start from scratch, I just stopped. Because in my mind, minimal = masculine, even if vines and flowers are involved. bwahahahaha! Thank goodness this went to a close friend who gets me, and won't be offended! Maybe I'll luck out and he'll read this and email later to say he had no idea it wasn't masculine. Ok, maybe that's a stretch... *grin*
I used one of my all time favorite color combos on the card: Old Olive and Eggplant Envy. The background stamps are from SU!'s Baroque Motifs, and the sentiment is from an older SU! set as well, though I can't think of the name of it at the moment. Oh, and note how there are also flowers stamped inside the card. Yeeeaaaahhhh. They're masculine flowers, so drop it. HA!
Today is also the first day of another Sweet n' Sassy Stamps Blog Hop! I'm in tomorrow's group, but if you want to hop through today's blogs, check out the info in my sidebar!
I also have to play along with a little tag I got recently. My friend Debby B. tagged me in a photo challenge. The rules for this challenge are - Go to where you store your photos on your computer. Go to the SIXTH folder and pick the SIXTH photo. Post that photo on your blog along with a SHORT story about it. Tag SIX people and leave a comment on their blog or email them letting them know you chose them.
Well, here is that photo... Actually, this is the 7th photo, but only because the 6th one was totally obstructed by the nurse, and kinda dumb. Basically the same shot though:
Wanna play along? Then consider yourself tagged! If you decide to play, let me know. I'd love to see your random photo!
