Birthday Card 2

Another man's card for last night!
Don't they look 'something missing'????? I have to really resist the urge to add some embellies, like flowers, organza frothy ribbons etc to cards! Having said that, I was reasonably happy that this was a suitable manly type card when it was finished!
The stamps are from Elusive Images done in Timber Brown Stazon and the background sponged lightly and randomly with Antique Linen distress ink. The main image matted onto brown then moss green card from the DCWV Neutrals stack (well it was out on my desk from the previous card!!). The striped paper came from Maureen again (thank you Maureen!) and this time I used MY new Martha Stewart punch for the lattice border!
The card fits a couple of challenges -
Quixotic Challenge - Leaves
Allsorts Challenge Wk 42 - Cards for Men

Great card for a man, but oh they are challenging to make, aren't they? I do love this tree stamp set...

Jan said...

Yes, men are always challenging (in more ways than one sometimes lol!) But this is beautifully simple and elegant. Love the colours and the stamp.
