Keri's Challenge Card

Hello...yes I am still alive. My goodness this was one crazy busy week and I am just now having a moment to get on the computer.

Lots of meetings all week and get to meet my other team member for JustRite. Lots of things in the works and I will be very busy getting my tasks taken care of....lots of fun.

Today was volleyball tournament day for Cody. Oh I love me some high school volleyball. It was so intense....esp with Cody being the tallest on the team. His jjob is to block and it kills me when something gets past him. He's 6'4" and that is not including when he has his arms up in the air.

Thanks to everyone that voted on my last challenge card. 95% of you said that I met the challenge. That's cool. I am still not overly fond of the colors I had to use but it worked for the challenge and I tried something different.

This card was Krafty Keri Lou's challenge for me. Here are her rules: My challenge for you is to do a card for a MAN using only dark green and brown colors! Have fun!

Well the challenge was finding some dark green paper in my stash. That's not a normal color that I keep in my stash. I only had a piece of avacado colored's hard to see but I matted the pattern paper band onto the green paper. The base of the card is brown craft and I layered some brown Bazzil Bling paper which is giving it that sheen. The pattern paper is from a pack of SU papers. The ribbon was in my scrap pile. I used more of the Bazzil Bling paper to punch out the letter for the word "Dad" using my Sizzix Circus alphabet dies. I actually pulled out my hodgepodge hardware and used an antique brass frame and stamped the sentiment in brown Versafine Sephia ink.

If you would like to vote on this challenge card you need to come directly to my blog to see the poll at the top of the page. I will try to post another card tomorrow night but right now I am working on a really cool scrapbook. If the weather is as awesome tomorrow as it was today I will probably finish up taking pics of the girls for my book.

See you on the blog!
