Soooo, here's my card for today. This card is also for the Guest Designer Challenge, which is Blue Jeans and Bling. How cool is that?!

I decided to make a masculine card for my project. I'm using a border stamp and sentiment from Well-Worn Greetings, and all three pieces of the coordinating die set. This is one fabulous die set! Love the shapes! You'll be seeing this one often!


See that denim trim? I picked that up at Hobby Lobby MONTHS ago--just because it's so cute! I knew it would come in handy sometime, and now's the time. So, OK, there's no real *bling* on it, but I'm considering those beads "boy bling". Work for you? A little distressing and a few brads finish it off.

And here's the inside. I created the sentiment using last month's Typewriter Alphabet (temporarily out of stock) set and stamped some stars from Well-Worn Greetings.




OK, that's it for me, today. I'll be back tomorrow with another amazing new set and die. LOVE.
