The Challenge #66

We have a new challenge for The Challenge, this week it is a Masculine Inspiration Challenge.

I made use of some of the co-ordinating sheets from a 6x6 paper pad for this one. I heat embossed the sentiment and added some buttons but the paper pretty much did all the work.

Supplies: White card stock, Designer Paper - Authentique, misc die cuts, Penny Black - Sprinkles and Smiles.

Stop over at Always Playing with Paper to take a look at what the design team has created for the challenge.

Thanks for visiting,


  1. Love your design here, Nina, the nautical patterned paper combined with the fun sentiment and buttons makes for a fabulous masculine card!!

  2. Love how you stamped the sentiment on that red plaid DP - a great touch!

  3. Great colour, pattern and scene combining, Nina ... such a cool, masculine card! Anita :)

  4. Nina, what a wonderful card! Love the patterns and the sentiment! The buttons add so much to your card, too! XX

  5. I love this!! I don't see buttons used very often anymore in Blogland! I miss buttons : ) I used some too on my card.


  6. Hi Nina,

    I really like all of your "nautical" themed cards - I still have one you sent (I think for Miles) one time. I like your paper choice and I agree - I have been hankering to use buttons too!

    Hugs, Sis
