MFT Sketch

I really liked the sketch from the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #160.  I used my STAMPlorations images from Chevron & Arrows. [Have you popped over and checked out the prices of the sets?  So affordable!!]

I kept the card very clean, since I am sending this to my son.  Screams masculine to me.


I got in some emails with some challenges that just inspired me!  CAS(E) this Sketch had an awesome sketch, The Male Room wanted a musical theme [keeping it masculine], and the Card Concept wanted texture.  Here is my card covering all those bases;


I added light texture by adding scored lines at the bottom while using the clean and simple card style this week for the Card Concept. 











Thanks for stopping by~

OMG....Vicki, your music card is absolutely stunning! Clean & Simple perfection! Beautiful subtle details that add so much interest to your design without compromising the C&S style...the folded banner, the punched border around the black mat, the elegant socred lines...WOW! I stared at this beauty for hours (okay, maybe that's a bit of stretch...but definitely several minutes!)

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to admire your talent at the Card Concept Challenge :)
