A Masculine Thinking of You Card

Coffee of the Day - Bourbon Pecan

It's the weekend! wooo hooo!
so let's get our crafty on with some fun ribbons and trims! ;)

I needed a 'Thinking of You' type card for my uncle, who is very ill. In his younger days, he used to love to hunt. I was so excited when I found a wonderful page of Woodland Deer Tags over at Polly's Paper Studio. you might remember that this store was a sponsor of our last challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbons, but Ginny, the owner, is also on the RRR Design Team! :) it was so easy to add one of these images to a card for my uncle.

The tag itself is tied with dark brown plaid ribbon that I lightly inked to give it an aged feel. a little snippet of brown burlap string ties the bow and is used on the big vintage button, too. a piece of crochet trim tops the vellum copper stripe banner. the pretty flower is one of the new coral open roses in the store. I added a few touches of ink to have it match the flowers on the tag.

I created the background by applying embossing paste to the Dreamweaver trees stencil. once the paste dried, I sponged ink of various shades over the top to create an ombre type effect. the deer tag was also sprayed with my SU! ink squirty tool.

I do hope you will join our 'Celebrate with Ribbon or Trim' challenge at RRR! we would love to see your latest projects! :)

enjoy your weekend!
