Join me for the PCCS016 Challenge!

The Paper Craft Crew Challenge is under way.. and we’re looking for your samples and ideas too!  You can view the PCCS016 challenge sketch HERE…. and here’s my masculine and lovely as a tree card for the challenge too!1.pccs016_lovelyasatree_createbyu_blogspot

There are six brads total on today’s card… three silver and three glimmer brads, just as shown in the sketch.2.twobradsandoaktreepccs016card

Argyle embossing and sponged scallops are just two of the little extras added to the PCCS016 challenge… I love my big shot die cutting machine, LOL and use the embossing folders daily!3.glimmerbrads_earlyespressoandpccs016

A strip of Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper coordinates perfectly with the very vanilla and soft suede colors used on today’s challenge card.4.pccs016thiniingofyoumasculinecardcreatedbyu

“Thinking of You” from the Sweet Essentials stamp set was stamped onto a long, narrow scrap of Very Vanilla Card Stock and then the ends were slipped into the Modern Label punch one at a time to add the punch detail.

Sponging the very vanilla card stock pieces using soft suede ink and a stampin’ sponge wedge gave today’s card and challenge a finishing touch.

I hope you’ll play along with the Paper Craft Crew this week… my card is a day late… but you still have six days to create your card and add to the challenge site!

I look forward to reading your comments and thank you for visiting my blog today!
