Welcome to Card Week!

Welcome to Card Week! Amanda inspired me with her card week for Operation Write Home, so I thought I'd change a little bit of how things run on my blog and do card week this week!  Each day I'll share a card AND a sketch I made the card off of. (All sketches are made by ME!) Now, these sketches are not perfect, but I'm sure you'll get the gist of what I'm trying to show on them. All of the cards I show this week will be going to OWH, so I tried to make them a little manlier than usual. Notice I said tried. I am horrible at making masculine cards.
So-- First card, here we go!
And the sketch I made. Note: I made my card sketch first and then made my card off of it, so I interpreted it like I would a normal sketch, changing a few things around here and there.
A few things about this card... I used some scraps from Basic Grey's Oliver line for this card. I already had a medium circle diecut, so I used it even though it's smaller than I would have liked. Hey-- it's a scrap, so I say use it up! :) I put the sentiment on a strip of white paper because it would have blended in with the background too well if I would have put the letter stickers directly on the patterned paper. Ok- that's about it for today! Come back tomorrow for another card!

You did fine with "manliness." Like the pop of red against the other colors.

That paper is perfect for a "manly" card!

Definitely a perfectly masculine card! The ticket is a perfect detail.
