Smooth As Glass

Today's card is a Masculine one.  Almost as tricky as a CAS for me to make, BUT with helpful coloring and shading tutorials from Theresa Momber, I am enjoying making them more and more.

This card will be entered into the following Challenges:

CMC #80, Dudes, Guys, Masculine

Penny Black November Challenge, Anything Goes

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes

Using Theresa's tutorial and guidelines I was pleased with how well this actually came out.  If I can follow her step by step directions, I am sure you will have NO issues creating a beautiful scene!   The stamps are from the Follow Your Dreams set available at  Gina K Designs.  It's a great masculine set and one I pull out often.  Spellbinders Grommet Tags dies and some Jute Twine to finish it off. 

This card measures 5.5" x 5.5".

As always, thanks so much for stopping by.

Be Creative~~
