Manly Thinking of You Card

Hello! I hope you're having a wonderful day! It's been a lazy day around my house and sometimes that's just what I need. This afternoon I created this Manly Thinking of You Card. My brother is having surgery this week and I need a card to send to him. He likes dogs, so I bought this Rottweiler Puppy digital image by Bugaboo. The image was fun to colour with my Copic markers! The design for the card comes from the Stella Says Sketch challenge and I combined a few other challenges for stitching and twine to come up with the end result. When I was searching through my paper stash, I realized I don't have many "manly" patterned papers. The papers I ended up using are from my scrap bin and I stitched them to neutral dsp by Stampin' Up! Well, hopefully he will like it. Thanks for stopping by!

This Manly Thinking of You Card is entered into the following challenges:
  1. Catch The Bug: Stella Says Sketch
  2. 4 Crafty Chicks: You've Got Me In {Stitches}
  3. The Ribbon Girl: Add Ribbon or Twine
  4. The Craft Place: Anything Goes
  5. Make It Monday: Anything Goes
