Wish You Were Here

It's always difficult for me to make masculine cards. I mean, really, there are SO many sweet embellishes & colors for females! How could I not want to use beautiful flowers, sparkling rhinestones, glitter & all of those pretty pinks?

Well, here is a little shout to the men. A masculine color scheme, wood beads, twine & a shell. All are neutral, dark & manly, I think.

This card was submitted to wonderful challenge blogs - See below for links & details, so you can create your own & join in the fun!

Such a fun beach y surfer MAN card! The beads & shell add the perfect touches, guessing this one might even smell like cologne?! :) hehe

I love how you've created a circle card instead of the typical card shape, it certainly draws the eye in.

Thanks so much for playing along this week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!

Great masculine card. I always want to use my girly stuff too. I find male cards difficult. I do make one today though. Must be the day to get out of our comfort zone. :o) Thank you for sharing your wonderful creation.

This card is so cool and full of natural embellishments perfect for guys. I completely agree with you about all the great bling for us girls and it is super hard to restrain ourselves, you have done an awesome job. The colors and the wood beads are awesome for this challenge. Thank you for being a part of the challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth

You are not alone! Manly cards are not easy to make - I wrestled with mine for hours, came back the next day, and finally had to call it good. You don't look as though you had any problems, though! Your card is perfectly masculine, for any age and any guy. The beads and shell are a fantastic addition, and the colors are great! Thanks so much for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments! Erika
