  • Perfect Pairing.  The Vintage Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set images have similar lines to the dots in the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper.

  • The sentiment is from Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I love the trendy mix of the two fonts!
  • Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine was the finishing touch. The twine was pulled apart to give a rustic finish to the bow.

    Broken record, but I love your “inspired by color” ideas. I see this as a possible masculine card, one of the most difficult for me to create.

    I ADORE this masculine style card. You put this one over the top with that AMAZING ‘Urban Underground’ DSP.

  4. I love your comments . . . thanks, all!

    WOW!! Mary, the first word that came to my mind when I saw the picture of this card was MASCULINE, totally masculine and super elegant and gorgeous.
    Your “Inspired by Color” picture is beautiful and the colors perfectly appropriate for a masculine card.
    Off to pinning on my board!!!
    Thank you for sharing.
