Hope you're having a lovely weekend! I had to make a male card this weekend - ugh, I'm not keen on these and the bad news is I have another to do this week as well :(! The good news is I have managed to make it for two challenges. This is my entry for the Just Magnolia challenge where this week there is a gorgeous sketch by Mina! Thanks Mina your sketch is brilliant! I am also entering the Stamp Something challenge for the first time, and their challenge is to use brown - perfect for a male card!
I have used two images from the summer kit, the fabulous breakwater fence - I just love colouring this so much! - and the cool surfer Edwin!
Not much else to say about this really as it doesn't have much in the name of embellishments! I have used buttons for the 6 little embellishment elements to Mina's sketch and I have added some string for a kind of beach feel - this was tied to a tag in some junk mail I received on Friday LOL! (I'm like a magpie when it comes to hoarding bits and pieces from things).
The sentiment is part of a Forever Friends stamp, I just masked out the bear. The papers are all K&Co, I thought the striped one was remeniscent of a deck chair to keep in with the beach/surf theme LOL! I added some tiny gems dotted around the card as it just looked to plain and boring to me without a bit of sparkle!
I have decorated the inside but it is incredibly plain, just carried the sketch through!
