Woodland Love Note

I think this card is pretty adorable if I may say so myself.

I made it mainly for the Hero Arts weekly challenge of which the theme is "manly" this week. Do you think it's "manly" enough? The love squirrel image is from the Hero Arts Whoo Loves You clear stamp set. The trees image is the Unity Stamp Co. So & So Loves... single. The images are colored with ink and a blender pen.

The argyle background is a Cricut die cut. The argyle and colors were inspired by that gorgeous DCWV ribbon. The green diamond shaped brads were originally silver ones that I covered in Ranger Distressed Embossing Powder. You know, there's something quite powerful in discovering that you can alter the color on just about anything with a little ink or embossing powder. It opens up a whole new (and more cost-effective) crafting horizon.

Finally, this card follows this week's Mojo Monday sketch #88:
