TMS #444



Hello and since another Tuesday has rolled around, it's time for the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #444. This week we have a sketch designed by our own Melissa.



You can already see that I've taken liberties with the sketch by eliminating the hearts and bow and turned my card into a masculine Father's day card.
The left side of the card is composed dsp panels from My Mind's Eye "on the bright side" paper pad. I chose masculine patterns and die-cut them with MFT stitched vertical dies. The black embossed panel was done with a Cuttlebug Cape Code ef which looked rustic to me in a way. The Kaisercraft stag die was cut in black and a wood-grain cardstock, and I placed the black die into the wood-grain negative and added some golden nailhead stickers. The sentiment is from the now-closed Mark's Finest Papers store.

This week there's a great prize up for grabs that everyone (including myself) would love to have! Check the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog for details and while you're there, check out my DT member's cards for some wonderful inspiration too! Or, you can click below to see each one..



Thanks for stopping by and have fun with the sketch! Have a good day while you're at it too :)

Oh my....I LOVE this, Carol! Love all the wonderful patterned papers you used and that deer diecut is awesome!!! You make the best masculine cards all the time and this one fits the bill today! Great job with the sketch, too! I recently saw a deer die like this at Micheal's by Recollections. It reminded me of all your fabulous cards! TFS and have yourself a great day! :)

I love your take on this sketch Carol!!! This is such a wonderful masculine card. The papers you used are fabulous and perfect for any man. The stag head you used I'm in love with and he is perfect inlaid on the wood. Loving the embossing folder you used too, it goes so well with the papers you used! Hugs, Brenda

Great masculine card design. I love the layout of that card too with all those fun papers and layers.

You've gotten a lot of versatility from this stag's head, and I loved it each time you have featured it on a card. This one has so much texture, (and I like the way you've added the bits of color with the side horizontal panels). What really stars on this one - tho - is the texture of that black embossing. It is absolutely perfect with your design...and it's a splendid Father's Dad card too! I liked your take on the sketch - very much! TFS & Hugs

Neat idea. That woodgrain paper looks so much like wood.
