Masculine Cards Can Be Fun to Make

Many of us struggle with making cards for guys, but Diane's Daydream Designs is helping to make it easier for us.  Diane has several new sets to use for masculine cards.  You can go here to see them.
I started with Kraft as the base - always great for guy cards.  I love these colors in the set of pre-colored images.  Also used the digi paper that matches the tie and colors perfectly.  You can't see it in the photo but I added  piecing (layer) to the collar, tie, and pocket.  Can you believe I have buttons that match this chartreuse paper?
The sketch I used is at Kraft Journal

Other Challenges I will enter:
Simon Monday - "M" masculine
Through the Craft Room Door - anything
Digi 4 joy - anything
Word Art Wednesday - anything
Creative Knockouts - lots of layers
Sister Act - anything
Challenge 4 Everybody - anything
