ASM - Adventure ....

...  Good evening everyone!  Hope you've had a good day.  It's been rather cold here, but at least we've had some sunshine!  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! - ASM#68 - and we have some colours for you to play with - Black, Green and Mustard.  Here's my card:


Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Gorgeous Grunge, Off the Grid; My Favourite Things - Hello My Name Is, Expand Your View
Inks: SU - Certainly Celery, More Mustard; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Die-namics - Fishtail Flags Layers Stax #4
Accessories:  White Lustre Card; SU DP - Certainly Celery; Project Life - Grid Journalling Card; Doodlebug Sprinkles; Black Card; Promarker - Honeycomb


When I saw our challenge graphic for the first time, I knew that I wanted to make a guy card.  I love More Mustard and Certainly Celery (both now discontinued).  I created the background by mixing stamps from Off the Grid and Gorgeous Grunge - sort of reminds me of my son's school books!!  I cut the flag from Certainly Celery design paper.  I made the sentiment by mixing stamps from Hello My Name Is and Expand Your View - both sets have some fab words.  I stamped them onto a grid journalling card, cut it down to size and then rounded two of the corners and layered it onto black card.  I finished the front with some enamel dots.  The inside is simply a repeat of the background, but created using second and third generation impressions - that way I can still write a message inside.  I used the layout from the current Seize the Sketch - STS#6 challenge.

 
Don't forget to check out the inspiration cards from the rest of the Design Team - we have a really mixed selection of cards for you - showing just how versatile the colours are!  That's all for now.  I'm off to do some more ironing - sadly that stuff never goes away ;)

You and I had the same thought to make a masculine card...both with Gorgeous Grunge too! lol I just love the background that you created. I usually only use GG and Off the grid on a little section of my card...I must try it as an entire background like you have done. It looks great!
