MASCULINE CARD AND A REALLY FUN WAY TO ATTACH A SENTIMENT TO A CARD

Today is my husband's birthday, and this is the card that I made for him.  All week, I have wanted to participate in Craft Project Central's Creating Pretty Cards - Card Challenge #7 and, since I needed to make a card for my husband, I decided that my submission would be a masculine design.  Stampin' Up! products used to create this card include "Countryside" and "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp sets, 1-3/8" circle punch, tag punch, silver brads, "Well Worn" designer paper, River Rock and Early Espresso card stock, Shimmery White card stock (for the stamped image), Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aqua Painter, Stampin' Sponges, Mat Pack and piercing tool, and denim ribbon.  I've had this ribbon for so long, and this is the first time I've used it.  I can honestly say that my most favorite part of this card is the way the sentiment tag is folded over the top of the ribbon.  Don't you just love it when a good idea jumps out at you at just the right moment?  Why don't you treat yourself to a cupcake to celebrate with us today and then create a card for Craft Project Central's card challenge #7?  You might end up winning a FREE one-month subscription!  There's really nothing to lose!
