Shell Game


I'm not exactly sure that this turned out the way I wanted it to. I was working with Thursday's Ways to use It Challenge which was to cut out an image for the card - done. I knew I wanted to use this turtle and I knew I wanted to use the sketch from CCEE Stampers. I guess I've done all the things I knew I wanted to do......but I also know it didn't turn out the way I planned/wanted. I'll have to rethink it. There's just some sort of spice that's missing. But, in the meantime.....it can be used as a masculine card when needed!

Hope your daily plans are being fulfilled.
I'm cutting/preparing for a Birthday Card Camp this Saturday. I'm also working with the new images I received from Sugar Creek Hollow in preparation for the Grand Opening on March 1. Don't forget to go over there and become a follower so you can have a chance to win a $50.00 gift certificate.

Since it's late Thursday night - I hope you have a fabulous Friday!!!

Beautiful card Joan, I love the gold embossing. Thank you for the lovely comments on my blog. I just keep layering up different flowers until I find a combination which I think looks ok. Have a good weekend

very pretty card, and you are right it will be great as a "man card"

I think this card is just great the way it is. Definitely a masculine card.
