During this crazy week, I finally was able to sit down last night to create this card for this challenge. I wish you could see the background on this card better because it has a lot of small detail that this picture is missing. I used the FRIENDS 24-7 stamp set for this card. I first took the damask piece and used bleach to stamp all over the Mellow Moss card stock. After that I took the Friendly Words wheel and with Night of Navy rolled over the stamped images. It gave it a more distressed look. And that is why instead of flowers, I used the Neutral Brads. I originally had flowers but they did not seem to go as well with the card as the masculine looking brads did. While I was working on this card, my daughter told me that she felt it was a more masculine card than feminine. I think that is why I used the embellishments that I did. I hope you like the card. I am on my way now to CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!! Will let you know how that turned out. Have a Merry half Christmas today!
