The second color challenge called for creamy caramel, real red and barely banana. I needed to make a masculine card for guy from work who retired, so I used the color combo for the card. I am terrible at masculine cards, but I was really happy with this one. The caramel card b ase is stamped with flannel plaid. The convertible from Classic Convertibles and the sentiment from Sincere Salutations are stamped in red. I distressed the banana and red layers under the image with my Heidi Swapp edge distresser. That is one of my favorite tools! I finished the card with some caramel eyelets and some red hemp.

Somehow I missed posting these two cards on my blog. I made them for the SCS color challenges last week and the week before. The first one was marigold morning, cool caribbean and pretty in pink. That was a true challenge! Then I spotted the toucan from Toucan of Love and that got me started. Toucan is stamped in Staz On and colored using a combination of blender pens and markers. I layered it on caribbean, pink and white, than layered that on a pink card base stamped with itty bitty backgrounds in caribbean. I also added a crimped caribbean piece and some torn strips of marigold. What can I say? I was experimenting with the layout. Not my favorite card, but I'm sure I can use it for a kid's Valentine.
