This is my third post of the day! It's great to get a day to stamp - especially in the middle of the week!
This is my submission for the Paper Players sketch challenge this week:
I started with the Beau Chateau paper which I've had all catalog year but hadn't used. From there I chose the colors and the card naturally progressed to more of a masculine card, hence the sentiment. Not sure if the crochet trim is exactly masculine, but I needed to cover the top of the scallop piece.
Here's the sketch, which I really like:
I ran the DSP through the Big Shot with the Finial Press folder, then sanded the embossed areas. After that I gently sponged Crumb Cake ink over the embossing to "age" the paper.
