Make My Monday: One For The Boys

Whew.  Masculine cards are HARD, you know?!  Luckily, I found the perfect digi in my printed stack and it was FATE!  Oh, I guess I should tell you that this week at Make My Monday we'd like to see you make ONE FOR THE BOYS!!!  I've gone monochromatic and steampunk, friends.

Here's my card~

Details~



I used the digi found HERE, stamps by Pink Paislee, eyelets from my stash, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

I am SO PROUD of this card.  It was so hard for me to fix on what to make and I think that I definitely succeeded.  Sorry to toot my own horn, but I am just so darned happy with myself!  I was going to bow out of this one due to lack of inspiration, but then I saw the digi and the houndstooth paper and it was on.  This could be used for any number of reasons, but maybe a graduation card--that was the suggestion on the site that I got the digi from.

 Thanks for taking time out of your day to come and visit me!  I really appreciate it!  I hope you have a little more time to come and play along with us this week!  And go see the other fabulous inspiration that the other DT members have for you, too!  Happy stamping! :)

I think you deserve to toot your own horn! It is a funky, perfect guy card and I am off to check that digi site as I need to make a guy card and have been putting it off!
