Today my card if for a 'Dad'. I've used the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches #128. I will also enter this in the Creative Knockouts challenge#93-use your stash (the papers-I've had them forEVER!); and the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C290-a masculine card.
All of the papers for this card were already on my table as I had been cleaning out one of my paper holders. When I saw this sketch I knew just what I was going to do with them. Although it is hard to see the colors on these papers (I need a new camera-this one does not capture the colors very well), the patterns on the background papers are copper foils, from the DCWV Naturals stack. Bright, shiny copper foils, and no matter how I turned the camera I could no capture that pretty shine. 'Sigh'. The brown paper is Co'ordinations Foundations Coffee. The speckled papers are from an old Provo Craft pad. I cut the letters out with Lawn Fawn Finlay's Alphabet Capitols. This is a funny set, all the letters except the 'i' are capitols. The i is a dotted i, lower case-what's up with that?
Anyway, I like the simplicity of this card, and I have a very hard time with simple cards-always want to add more-but this one is okay just as it is.
