ATS Wednesday...Cards For Men


This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for The Pixie Cottage's Team Sketch or Something Sweet Challenge.


Hello Everyone!

Today's All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge is "Manly Cards"!

Yes .....I know my image is female but she is supposed to represent "me" and the poem is to my husband. Therefore in my mind, my card is a "manly card".

I found a Halloween love poem and was inspired by it and wanted to make something special for my hubby. The focal point of my card is my image Sugarplums Witch Emma and the Halloween poem. I also added elements of texture to my card with the black netting, buttons and Cuttlebug's spider web embossing folder. Design papers are by Cosmo Cricket and some scraps pieces.

To play along with our weekly challenges, you must use a image that is sold at the All That Scraps Store. Upload your finished card to the ATS blog using the Mr. Linky feature. The winner of every challenge wins a really nice package from C.C. Designs Store. So....What are you waiting for lets get crafty and show off those cards! *lol*

Have a super great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
