This post is going to be a quick one since I am getting dinner served.

I just finished a masculine card.  This doesn't happen very often, but I am quite pleased with the results.
The base card stock and mat layer are all by Recollections.  The panels were embossed with my argyle folder.  All edges were distressed with Studio G Brown ink.  I used stamps from 2 {Ippity} Sets.  Flowers on the bottom are from Now & Always.  The foliage in the center panel and the sentiment at the bottom are from Where You Should Be.

This card was made with the help and inspiration of some fabulously talented Ippity Chicks and a sketch over at Chick Challenges - #19 Sketch  along with the wonderful team and inspiration for the   CAS theme challenge at Unity Opporutity
