Hello, I have a few cards to share. I am a devotee of the OWH challenges and I am a bit behind.
My first card is for the monthly ODBD challenge and this month we are to make masculine cards. Cards for Fathers Day are due to OWH by the end of this month so I am in the masculine mind set.

I combined several stamps from Avery Elle's 'The Man' set to create the focal sentiment. 

I went in a feminine direction and tried out some IndigoBlu leafing flakes- oh so pretty in real life- not easy to photograh! I have 2 jars of flakes. One container is full of flakes in a variety of colors: copper, silver, blue, & green but mostly gold and the other is silver, silver and  just silver! Gorgeous!

I tried using OWH sketch #250 but I just could not find a way to put the bottom strip across my circle-- it cut off the body of the CTMH stamp of a celebrating/dancing gal in unpleasant ways no matter how I positioned it!

Try Stampin on Tuesday (Trystampinontuesday.blogspot.comalso posted a sketch- and oh no- that dreaded bottom strip again- LOL.  I was more successful with this strip! The silver leafing is stunning in person! Different from heat embossing-which I struggle with- especially on solid images- so the flakes make me happy! 


Thanks for stopping by,
