You Are Amazing!

I have another Manly card for you today!  At least, I hope it is manly!  I'm playing with the Pink by Design Ink it Pink challenge again this week!  The goal was to create a masculine project.  I wanted to do this to challenge myself as I always find it hard to make masculine cards and layouts - yet the majority of my family is male!  I am the only girl of three children, have a bonus SON (no daughters) and 3 nephews (no nieces) so you'd think I'd be a pro at creating MANLY designs.  I'm not!  I prefer the pink, orange, flowery, glittery, girly pages and layouts best!  Sorry boys!  At any rate, I made this card for my dad.  I've already made a Father's Day Card for him so I might just save this one for a random day and mail it to him.  :)  So here it is....let me know if it's MANLY enough....would you give it to your Dad?!?

 For this card, I used mostly scraps - a few came from the DCWV Tattered Time stack.  I used the provocraft Fleur-de-lis embossing folder in my cuttlebug to create the textured paper.  I used the Pink by Design Script 1 background stamp on the card base and the DAD you are amazing sentiment came from the Pink by Design Our Father's set.  For the banners, I just cut different widths and lengths of paper and then just used scissors to create the banner shape - that's why they're not so symmetric!  The burlap came from Hobby Lobby.

I kinda like how it turned it out!  How about you?

Happy Crafting!
