WWC263 - Tristan's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist

Hello!  I am so pleased you stopped by.  Today we are making Masculine cards at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Tristan is our hostess.
In my family, boys/men enjoy humorous animal cards so that was my starting point.  I stamped, Copic colored and die cut the animals and greenery.  Next I die cut the sentiment and then assembled the scene with foam tape.  I thought the monkey swinging from the sentiment was fun.

Seize the Birthday "A Touch of Green" Challenge I used a soft green textured background and lovely green foliage to showcase these party animals. 

As You See It "Preferences" Challenge  My favorite type of card to send is Birthday cards.  I have a monthly calendar with friends and family's birthdays so I never miss a birthday.  

Inspirational: Designer's Choice "Animal" My card features a playful trio of animals.

Alphabet Challenge - Something for Youngsters  I think animals are always a popular option for the youngsters in our life.

 I was so pleased to see this card was selected "top 3" at The Alphabet Challenge!

My card was also The Top Pick at As You See It.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
