Men's wear challenge



When I saw this challenge on Betsy Veldman's blog I just had to play along. She challenged us to be inspired by some piece of men's clothing, and my very favorite husband's shirt came to mind and this card was born. I kept it simple, nothing fussy because I wanted it to also really reflect my dear hubby:) I heat embossed the large flourish, used a white gel pen to make the sentiment pop and added a few metal brads. I love how it came out! So cool to translate a shirt I always love to see on him into a card, thanks for the challenge Betsy!

WOW! You really nailed it! That card looks so much like the shirt! And it's a really awesome card too. I have to admit, I often use my kids clothes for card inspirations (it helps me match up colors and patterns) I know if it looks good on an outfit it will look good on paper ;)

This is a great card, Leah! I love all of the layers and details, but you've also kept it very manly! Thanks for playing along!
