Masculine Birthday


I love this Rubbernecker tractor image because it makes great masculine cards, so today I made a card loosely based on the Crooked Stamper Sketch challenge #3
I started with early espresso and kraft cardstocks, stamping the tractor with Memento black ink, and coloring it with colored pencils for a rustic look. The grass was stamped with 2 stamps by Judith in wild wasabi and handsome hunter greens. The sentiment is by SNSS and the panels were die cut with my Lil Inker stitched rectangles. ( I can't seem to make a card without them lately it seems)
                                          

Have a great Sunday, and may your skies be filled with lots of sunshine too!

Rustic and so pretty! What a great card for a guy too. I love, love that grass you stamped!!! Every time you use it I love it more - guess I need to see if I can find those somewhere.
Fantastic card Carol.

Yeah! Love this card, it is great for a masculine birthday or just for someone who loves the farm and the great outdoors (which I do in concept, but reality has a bit more pollen than I find acceptable).

Hey, Just saw your wonderful entry over at DeeDee's and zipped over to pay a visit. I'm loving this rustic tractor...your pencil coloring is just brilliant. It really looks so faded & old the way you've shaded it. Got a quick glimpse of some of the earlier cards, so will try to get back tomorrow afternoon to do some fun browse around! Hope all is well. TFS & Big hugs
