This card is for today's SCS Feature Stamper Challenge (FS169)! Congrats, Eliotstamps(Michelle)! Beautiful gallery! Here is the card I chose to CASE!

I kept the basic theme with the leaves. I rocked and rolled mine, too. I used three colors. Not sure how many Michelle used. I changed the layout just a bit. I incorporated a sentiment on the ribbon portion. I used some chocolate felt ribbon and just adhered the sentiment panel over. I finished with a layered button and some frayed string from twill. While this card was easy to do, it truly tested my will power to want to slap a flower on it! Goodness, that part was hard! Hee!  This card is also for the Midnight Madness SC51!  I love this simple sketch design!  Just had to play! 

All of the papers were stamped using stamps from PTI...dp by ME!  I am finally getting around to inking up my new stash of goodies.  It has been a busy busy week and my new stuff just sat there for days without me playing with them! Boo Hoo!  I am so loving these new masculine sets.  I realized I hardly had any masculine theme images in my stash.  I think this Masculine Motifs set is just fabulous.  Also, I was very hesitant to get the woodgrain bg, but now I am so glad I did.  I used it on the sentiment...stamped off a bit.  Love that finishing touch to the whole card!  Of course, the distressed stripe set just speaks for itself.  Lots of potential with it!  The right panel uses three of the striped images sort of overlayed stamped.  The left panel is the happy birthday sentiment stamped repeatedly to give me  a script bg look. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
