Here is my card for both challenges:
I decided to make a thank you card for my DH. I used patterned papers from Bo Bunny called Forever Fall. I thought the rich yellow, orange, burgundy and teal would make for good non-tradional male colors. I stamped the fall wreath from Impression Obsession onto Cryogen White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I sponged around the image panel with one of my new Tim Holtz Fall Distress Inks - Gathered Twigs. The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Thanks A Million set and it's stamped with SU Bermuda Bay. I added a bit of teal raffia for a more masculine look than ribbon and I finished it off with a few gold rhinestone leaves.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon!
