PSC33: For a Special Man

This week at The Perfect Sentiment we are challenging you to honor the special men in your life with a card. You can use whatever sentiment you feel appropriate for your masculine card as long as you remember to include it on the front of your card. Our twist this week is "no patterned paper".

Our sponsor this week is Pattie's Creations. 
Pattie will award one random winner a digital stamp of their choice.

Since I couldn't use any patterned paper I chose to work with one of the older dynamic duos from Stampin' Up!®...Retired Brilliant Blue and current Bashful Blue. I chose to create an embossed pattern on the Bashful Blue cardstock using a Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I cut out a lacy oval with a Spellbinders die and stamped the lighthouse image from Sweet n Sassy Stamps on it in Danube Blue from Memento Ink. I then inked all the edges of the lacy oval with the same color of ink. When I think of masculine cards I always think of buttons so, I added three buttons to the bottom of the panel for a clean and simple finished look.

My Design Team and Guest Designers have done their usual Rock Star quality creations. Please pay them a visit:

Once inspired, please come join us at The Perfect Sentiment.

Here are some more fun challenges that I would like to enter:
Die-Cuttin Divas: Buttons, Banners, and/or Birthdays
Paper and Such Design: Father's Day
Top Tip Tuesday: Dig out the old. Use something older than 6 months. (Brilliant Blue cardstock and blue buttons have been in my stash since 2006)
The Pink Elephant: Buttons Galore

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. God Bless You!
