Freshly Made!

Wow, can't believe I even had the energy to finish this card last night. Had an explosion of beans in my garden-picked two 13 quart bowls Saturday night. Worked all afternoon yesterday cleaning and packaging beans. I now have 28 packages of bean in my freezer! And even had some ripe tomatoes, enough to eat. Most likely won't get enough to freeze, but they sure are good right off the plant. Yum!
On to my card for today. I am still working on masculine cards. This one would work for any age. I used the sketch from and will enter this in the Freshly Made Sketches #47 challenge:

The DP is from Paper Pizzaz "Masculine Sara Papers', the blue CS is Beckett Cambric Linen (love this CS) and the brown cardstock is from my scrap basket. The image is from CTMH Happy Camper stamp set. It's stamped on Bazzil ivory Smooth CS and colored with Copics. I cut the image out with Spellbinders Classic Circles and matted it on brown cut with SB Pinking Circles. When I stamped the sentiment (Verve-Big Wish) it didn't show up very well, so I covered the piece with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder to make it stand out a bit more. I distressed the edges of the label and the dark blue DPa bit, and added faux stitching around the background paper with a black marker.
Copics used: E23, E42, E30, W1, BG11, BG72
