2sketches4you

This week over at 2sketches4you we have a lovely sketch made specially for us by the very talented Laura... oh and a super creation from her too....
Oh what to make.... me wondered and wondered... then decided to use the sketch to make a birthday card for my mum's husband... you know how those masculine cards are always the harder ones to make & I thought the clean cut lines on this sketch were just perfect....
Well I do love brown, blue, green colour combos so wasn't hard to decided upon which papers to use...




Here I have opted to use the Ella & Finley papers from the In The Meadow collection from Daisy Bucket Designs... the epoxy sticker is by Christine Adolph from Creative Imaginations (I love this company so much & they are actually based in my husbands home town), white circular tag is by Heidi Grace & ribbon is from Cardology.
Hope I managed to achieve a masculine enough look...
Well I'm off to bed now for some well needed zzzzzzzz's.... got some scrapbooking to help my friend with tomorrow...
Happy crafting
