TSTR #79 - ‘Boys Will Be Boys’

Hi everyone. I am so happy today! Fall is finally here and the weather is cool, rainy and in general just a stay inside day.  We are all so thrilled that the heat wave has ended and we are getting some much needed rain. 

This week I am participating in The Shabby Tea Room’s card challenge Week #79 - 'Boys Will Be Boys'.  The challenge is to make a card with a MASCULINE THEME AND USE THE COLORS FROM THE INSPIRATION PICTURE.  I don’t know about you, but making a masculine card is so hard for me.  I just think it is difficult to stay away from flowers, ribbons and bows (hehe). 

OK. So, here is the card I created for this challenge:


The coordinating papers are from Bobunny.  I quilled the duck and cattails on the center medallion and cut a frame using Spellbinders Nestabilities.

A button, some feathers, brads and metal spirals complete the “glam” on this masculine card. 

This card is going to be my Dad’s birthday card but, shhhhh. Don’t tell him! His birthday is in December and I am always so busy then.  Here is the inside:

A nice piece of cut paper with accent border, more brads and a chipboard diamond with a Happy Birthday sentiment. Now all I have to do is write to him!
