Masculine ;-)... second post for the day -- double yahoooo!!

Hello once again people!!

I can't believe this is my second post for the day. It didn't look as if I'd manage even one though. This card is for 2S4Y's sketch no. 53 by the uber talented Kazan. How I love their sketches, only my archives can tell you :-) Though I don't manage to submit my card every time, I do love them so!! I can't believe it is their 2nd anniversary already. And I started blogging at around the same time :-) They've grown beyond imagination; and poor ol' me is still learning :-)

But here's one card I'm happy with:

Tell me the DP is gorgeous!... *waiting*.... thank you ;-) Well, do you know where it comes from? he he he.... We'd gone out for dinner at a pub last week with some cousins. They had these super tempting sheets of paper used as table mats. The first thing I said when I saw these was that I have to use them in a card. So my hubby obliged by picking up a new sheet from the counter on our way out :-) And I am loving this card now. Too bad I took only 1 sheet... next time I'll ask them to give me a few more :-)

I wanted the pattern to be visible so I layered a piece of vellum [I couldn't locate my acetate sheets :-( but no regrets now]. I flipped the sketch of course. Added simple foam letters and a chipboard diamond. I doodled the stars using my silver gel pen. The ribbon is from mom :-) and it is kind of elastic... it was fun working with it!! Do tell me what you think of this simple but truly masculine card [too bad the cask of whiskey is hidden behind the black CS] ;-)

Cheers [literally!],
