Masculine Sketch Challenge

Well good morning friends *if you're out there! It's been quiet in blog land lately!*
Today's Sketch Challenge on SCS is FANTASTIC and my Father-in-Law just happens to have a bday coming up! Go figure, the girl with boxes FULL OF CARDS can't find a masculine bday card *rolling eyes*. Oh well, gave me an excuse to stamp:D
I pulled out some of my favorite old Papertrey Ink stamp sets for this one!

Making the card:
1-create card base out of 5.5x8.5 piece of cardstock (scored at 4.25)
2-cut piece of Spring Moss cardstock 1/8" shorter on both sides
3-Cut piece of dp from Everyday Blessing pack by PTI to another 1/8" shorter and adhere to Spring Moss piece.
4-Cut piece of dp from Everyday Blessing pack by PTI to 2x5.25 and cut with Spellbinders Piercabilities.
5-Stamp sentiment from Birthday Basics on dp.
6-adhere ribbon (from MM pack) and add 3 Rustic Wood buttons by PTI, tied with Jute string.
7-Stamp tree from Father Knows Best in ripe avacado and trunk in Rich Cocoa by Momento. Cut piece out, off center, with Giga Scalloped Square punch
8-Mount scalloped quare on dimensionals onto a slightly larger piece of chocolate chip cardstock. 9-Add Spring Moss circle behind the square and adhere everything down!

That's it, pretty easy!
Would you like to see why you shouldn't let your husband write on the inside of your cherished artwork?
Oh NO HE DI'INT! He wrote so huge that it SPILLED onto the pretty part! AARGH! LOL! He calls me in and goes "Honey, you are going to have to remake this card, I ruined it!" Hahaha! What a sweet man, I love him and I love his personal touches on my card, hee! I'll be sending this one out, just as it is:)

Hope ya'll have a wonderful Wednesday, the weekend is RIGHT around the corner *as is HIP HOP!*

Great card, masculine or otherwise. That was great that you let us see what your hubby did to the inside. Quite a funny story. I'm with you, I would send it "as is", too. : )
