Just another day in my life

Lollipop Challenge #47 Double Team

on September 5, 2011

So it’s holiday Monday here, but still means new challenge day at Lollipop Crafts. This week is a fun little challenge that my team is hosting.

It’s a double team: 2 stamps/images (sentiments count as 1), 2 patterned/designer paper, 2 of the same embellishments (may use more than 1 type in multiples of 2) and 2 ribbons (same or different).

This week’s sponsor is Meljen’s Designs.  I just love her stuff and the winner gets 4 items of choice.  (She has some great Christmas ones if you are looking to make your Christmas cards soon, like I am).

Here is this week’s card.  I had originally made this as part of a birthday swap that I am doing with CanadianScrapSwapChat but decided I didn’t think it fit the theme that I was assigned very well so I’m making something different.  I think it is still a great simple masculine birthday card and I plan to make some multiples to have on hand.

the stamped image is from a stamp set that I won off of the CK forums.  This is the first time that I have used it.  The sentiment is from a swap as well and the scraps are from my stash.  The ribbon is from the $$ store and the twine from my Whisker Graphics win.  I hope you like it.

I’ve entered into the following challenges:

Cards For Men: G is for GM Series (the name of the stamp set)

Crafty Boots: Anything Goes

Creative Stamp Friends: Card for a Man

Lia Stampz: Birthday

Make it Monday: Birthday Blog Hop

Birthday Sundaes: Birthday

Crafting When we Can: Anything Goes
