This is for today's colour challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. We were to use Bashful Blue, Soft Suede and Ruby Red.

This is also for this weeks sketch challenge over at THE PINK ELEPHANT.

I was asked to make a card for a co-worker who is leaving us for a new position. This card is 5.5 x5.5 so there is room for everybody to sign it.

I tried to make a more masculine themed card...which I always find difficult. I used my new Stampin Up border & corner punches that I received today.

All edges are heavily sponged.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: SU~ Garden Silhouettes; Fiskars~Round of Applause
Paper: Soft Suede, Ruby Red, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Same as above
Accessories: Nesties, Border & Corner punches, Soft Suede Ribbon, Sponging, dimensionals, brads.

Thanks for looking....have a great nite.
