Just for the Men!

Good morning everyone....we have had several guy birthdays in the last few weeks so I thought I would share a couple of the cards I made. I had to make a birthday card for a male cousin and the Splitcoast Color Challenge colors of Garden Green, River Rock, and Lucky Limeade were perfect!! Papertrey Ink's Chevron Stripes set was used along with PTI's Birthday Basics set for the sentiment. The colors were brayered on the stamps for a blended gratuated effect.

This is also for the House of Gilli Challenge to use green,  Lexi's Creations Challenge to use monochromatic colors, and the Everybody Art Challenge to use monochromatic colors.

This is the birthday card I made for my DGS Cody who turned 9 and loves baseball!! This is pretty simple...Cosmo Cricket Lil'Man chipboard stickers are used along some Baker's Twine and baseball paper from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics and Cody's name is spelled out with stickers from The Girls Paperie.

This is also for a few challenges:
1. Creative Craft Challengec - boys will be boys
2. Cupcake Craft Challenge - boys and their toys
3. Dream Valley Challenge - just for men

Thanks for visiting...have a great Thursday!!!
