Northwoods Pines!

Good morning! This is for today's Clean and Simple Challenge! Today we were to create a masculine card!

The lovely image (Northwoods) was stamped using Versamark, sprinkled with black embossing power and heated with a heating tool! I colored the image using copics E27 and E09 for the pine boughs and YG03 for the pine needles! The border was made using an EK Success border punch! The inside was layered and an embossed pine bough was glued in place! All card stock is from GinaK's fabulous Pure Luxury Collection!

This is for our neighbor that has been housing one of my DH's toys. He has now sold it so it will no longer be cluttering up Bill's garage! Anyhoo, it was really nice that he could do that and it saved us having to rent a space!

Big boys and their big toys!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your have a wonderful blessed day!

Stunning, Francie!!! Love this layout and design. The pierced border detailing is fantastic!!! Great manly card!!!

BTW, this challenge made me laugh because I did not think there was anything clean and simple about!!! I am sure they would say the same about us girls, too, though!!! Still made me laugh!
