Paper Players Sketch #88 & CCMC195


On today's card I used a sketch from the Paper Players and a color combo from Create with Connie & Mary.  My neighbor needed a birthday card for a man and I thought these colors and the sketch both went well with the eagle from In Wilderness.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  The dsp and ribbon are retired.  One thing I wish I could change would be to have the knot on the other side to balance out the poppy sentiment piece.  But I don't want that change enough to try to take the card apart!

Thanks for stopping by!

Clean, simple, masculine. Great card! The ribbon treatment is great...it's hard to work ribbon onto a manly card, but this looks wonderful. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!
