Midweek Throwdown - Masculine

Here's my card for the OWH Stars and Stamps midweek throwdown to make a masculine card. I followed a former OWH sketch that I frequently use because I can use up my scraps quite easily. I  went with some camouflage colors and used up some epoxy stickers for the sentiment.  The star was embossed with gold ep and wrapped with some gold cording. The card base is dark brown Bazzill textured card stock. Embossing was done with a Darice tiny stars ef. 

I'm also entering this into Pixie's Crafty Snippets playground #80 since I used snippets of scraps for the colored panels.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Thursday!

Crumbs Carol - this is perfection! You deserve a big star for yourself, it's beautiful. Love those epoxy letters and the star wrapped with cord is a beautiful touch against the brilliant embossed star background.

Hugs, Di xx

Very nice and "soothing" card. I bought that exact embossing dye at Archiver's just this morning, so it's great to get a bit of bonus inspiration. Thanks!
