The Challenge #70

Welcome to a new The Challenge, this week we have a Masculine Inspiration Challenge.

I know that this is a prop of a plane but the black and chrome just screams Harley Davidson to me :), typically that is exactly the type of card I would create. Especially as it is for my husband's 50th Birthday.

This year however, there is a group of '66 babies at my husbands work that decided it would be fun to head to Vegas as a group. Hence the theme of my card, with the heart of HD of course :).

I used stitched die cuts on the center panel, then popped it up with foam tape. I then embossed dice onto chrome/silver and black card stock before using the same die cuts to cut out rectangles and squares. I finished with the sentiment that is popped up and added a little twine,

Supplies: White, black, silver card stock, Papertrey Ink - Birthday Bash, Simon Says Stamps - Stitched die cuts, embossing folder, twine.

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