SC 084/13...

This could be a very short post as I am having big issues with my mouse & pc.

It was Gwen's turn to set our challenge this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations & once again she has been easy on us.

All we have to do is create a card for a Male!  It could be a scrapbook page, 3-d project or anything else you can think of.  Some of us have trouble creating male cards, so hopefully with the lovely ideas the Design Team have should help you on your way.

I started with a sketch from another challenge, but somehow got off track & only created using the sketch so far & then I sort of went off on my own, which means I won't be entering it in the other challenge.  Thank you Mary-Jo for your inspirational challenge!

I will be the first to admit I haven't used Chocolate Chip in a long time, so decide to use that for my Base Card.  I wanted the colours to be beachy without going traditional, so I teamed it with Tangerine Tango with a touch of Always Artichoke.  I'm really happy with the final result, although the picture does not do it justice.  For some unknown reason I had a hard time taking a photo of this card.  The photos all seemed to be blurry.....

What a great card. I love the colour combination. Your fish looks almost 3d.

Love, love your card and love this stamp set. I do believe I need to break down and jut buy it. Great for a masculine card and wonderful colors.
