The Shabby Tea Room - Week 47

This week's challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room is "Get Creative". Create a card with no patterned paper or manufactured embellishments. Wow! That was truly a challenge for me! At least I could use my friend, the Cuttlebug! :) I decided to make my hubby a Valentine's card. Men - less is better on their cards!!

4 Crafty Chicks - color challenge

Our sponsor this week is Just Rite Stampers. I used their new set, Happy Everything Tag Making Kit. This is a must-have set! It comes with 18 sentiments and 4 custom tag dies. So practical.

JustRite Stamps will be providing our lucky winner a scrumptious prize package containing the Happy Everything Mini Tag Kit and the Fancy Tags Set Cling ... a prize package valued at approximately $53 - WOW! The Shabby Girls {heart} JustRite Stamps :)

  1. Your card is gorgeous; I love that argyle background. Perfect for a masculine card. Colors, leafs, sentiment and embossing; everything goes so well together; beautiful!

  2. What a PERFECT masculine card, Nicole! I am sure Chris will {adore} it :)

  3. I think it's absolutely STUNNING!!! Love everything about it. So pretty.

  4. Love you card Nicole! I also did a challenge this week with no pattern paper. That was up my alley, but no store bought embellies that would have been super hard. I love your text the diamond stamp and the little branches you used for your circle. The texture adds the pop to your card. You rocked our color combo at 4 Crafty Chicks, it is awesome you shared it with us.. These colors are so nice. Hope you are havinga great week.

  5. Great card! I love the color combo, texture and the use of the background stamp. I always forget to use mine!

  6. Perfect for the man in your life. Yes, the Cuttlebug is our friend, for sure. Your card is super!
