PPA54.....Kind Thanks

Good Friday Morning Peeps!!!

Today's card share is made with the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. this week is Masculine KISS, which is KISS (Keep It Simple, Sweetie) challenge,and they added an extra dimension to it and have made it a masculine KISS challenge.

Well, I started my card with a 5 inch square base of always artichoke, the DS paper is from the retired To the Nines Specialty paper, I have alot of this pack left, it screams masculine to me, a type I have trouble with. I knew this pack would help me out, I pulled my colors from the colors in the pack. The next layer is a piece of Sahara sand that was embossed with the square lattice EF. the next two layers are the DS paper. The sentiment is from the "Thank You Kindly" stamp set. I stamped with timber brown stazon onto a piece of Sahara sand. The star is punched out with the large star punch out of a wood sheet, I have had since last catalog and had never used. I added some antique brads to the center of the star and the Sahara sand piece. The star is up on a dimensional. Pretty clean and simple, altho even my CAS cards take me forever to do, and masculine. And on the plus side, this card is very mailable. Not much added to weigh it down.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Not just need a category for "Perfect"!!
Masculine cards are difficult at the best of times. This one of yours is the perfect thing. And it would suffice for many, many occasions. Thanks for the idea! :)
God Bless, <>< Cynthia
