OCC Challenge - Masculine Card/Project

Hello everyone! I would like to announce that we have a NEW spot for our weekly sketch challenge - OCC Sketch Blog, that way our sketch is always at the top. Everyone is invited to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.

We are starting a NEW month over at the OCC, which means we have a NEW hostess, Linda Coughlin. This week Linda has challenged the OCC to a masculine Valentine card/project. The challenge is to create a card/project for the men in our lives, a significant other, Dad, Brother or friend. We can’t wait to see where your inspiration will take you this week!!

Nothing fancy but I created this for my DH. For the colors, I used Kraft, white, close to cocoa and real red. The background was stamped using the block stamp from SU and then I embossed it using my Scor-Pal. The heart was added using my heart Nestabilities and tag. To finish off my card, I added the cord and four hearts for our four children. I can not tell you how nice it was to create a card in less then 10 minutes.

Before I go, I have to share with all of you that I got my tickets for the A-Ha concerts in NY this May. I am SO excited to see them in concert and hopefully I will even get my picture taken with Morten!! As of right now, they only have 4 concerts scheduled, two in NY & two in CA - I consider myself to be VERY lucky that I got my tickets!! Have a wonderful weekend!

Sweet card, Jennifer. I LOVE the colors you chose. The scoring and the 4 hearts really make it special and 10 minutes??? I'm jealous, I don't think I have ever completed a card in less than an hour!! I did this week's OCC card in 3 hours and that is a record lately - I was flying through it!

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Hugs,
Linda

Love the background stamp and the embossing, Jennifer! The white around the heart really shows off the heart and "I love you" tag. Great job! Have a great weekend!
