Ok, as I said, I simply could not resist using this paper for this week's Seize the Birthday masculine card challenge from their featured sketch. All products used are from Close To My Heart: I used the new "Later Sk8r" paper kit, I cut the gear using the Artiste cartridge on Slate paper which I backed with a simple circle of Whisper, I edged and random sponged Slate over the gear as well to give it some dimension. The sentiment was stamped in Outdoor Denim using a retired set called "Gear Up" which is yet another set I hadn't quite gotten around to using yet but I think this one will be seeing a lot of ink in the near future.
Talk about a banner day! I had a paid holiday, I posted 2 projects, broke out 2 stamps I had not used before, I got to use a new paper kit and the Artiste cartridge, AND I'm over a month *early* making a birthday card with a specific person in mind. Oh, yeah, and we had lots of leftovers from the weekend so I didn't even have to cook!!!! This is pretty close to heaven on earth, LOL.
Happy crafting, Annette
