The Challenge #5

I had a fabulous crafty day and I made a good handful of cards. Lesley posted a new sketch for The Challenge that I could not wait to play along.

I used a new 12 x 12 paper pack that I picked up at JoAnn's last weekend when we went to Tacoma for the George Strait concert.. On a side note, fantastic concert – George Strait is one of those (in his own words - troubadour) that I have always wanted to hear in person and my wonderful husband made that happen.

Anyway, paper pad.. J love the patterns and colours, I am sure this one will be one of my favorites for the next little while. I have to admit to loving this linen ribbon too and made a button with large holes to accommodate the ribbon.
Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper – DCWV, Verve – Happy Birthday, Verve Stamp – Happy Birthday, brown linen ribbon, circle die cut.


  1. love the color of paper you used ...you always have neat papers. Awesome card Nina.


  2. Love this monochromatic color scheme. You made all the elements work together so well.

  3. Saw this over at The Challenge. Love your masculine birthday card!
