Banjo Pickin'

     I'm going to use today's card for a masculine birthday card and it showcases another of the QKR Stampede bears I love so much.  Our new challenge starts today and this time it truly is "Anything Goes."  No optional twist, nothing - just anything you care to submit.

     The image is called "Banjo Picking" and the sentiment is "A Little Flat" but I changed the actual sentiment inside the text bubble to better fit this card.  You can see the original by clicking on the image title above.


     I colored the image with my ProMarkers and cut it with a square, stitched die from Lawn Fawn.  I inked the edges before adhering it to the card.

     I chose some denim blue CS and ran it through my music embossing folder.  Before putting it on the card front, I wrapped chevron striped ribbon to it and then added the image on top of that.  A small blue bow with a pearl finished it off.  Nothing too fancy for a masculine card.

     I love making cards because it both relaxes me while I'm crafting and allows me to express my creativity.  To be able to do masculine cards (something I truly love, unlike many crafters) means that I always have something for a guy that I can grab, even at the last minute when there's no time to get a card made!
