Blogger's Challenge #52: A Manly Challenge!


Our challenge was to come up with a manly-themed card. I think that although I chose a satin finish ribbon, this is manly enough for a real man!

Lots of things going on with Stampin' Up! 1. The retired list hit the public last Sunday...Wow!! 2. A new product line called Decor Elements was announced! But more on those a little later!!! I'm such a tease!

This is very nice, Lisa. I like how you twisted the ribbon with the hemp twine. So unique! :)

Yep we had cowboys on the brain! Great idea and of course you just can't go wrong with the outlaw paper and Wanted stamp set. Nicely done!

I like your card Lisa. Love the linen or is it hemp on the satin ribbon. Definately "man's" it up!

That ribbon really compliments the colors and stamps. Would never have thought of using that to embellish. Awesome card.

I think this is perfect for a manly card. Not too much -- my hubby always asks -- why all the fufu on all the cards? So he would love this one. I do too.
