Get well wishes...

...for a man. I find it hard to make masculine cards--I'm too into frou-frou, LOL! Anyway, this card is a get well card for a man and is for the Mojo Monday #67 challenge.

My base card is Whisper White with a layer of Garden Green, then a layer of Basic Gray, then a layer of DSP from the Prestwick collection. All four corners have an antique silver brad as accents. The next element is Basic Gray and another pattern of the DSP embellished with two lacing brads and denim blue hemp. The focal image was stamped on Whisper White with Garden Green and Going Gray using the grass stamp from SU!'s Inspired By Nature set and is matted on Basic Gray. A little paper piercing balances the upper left corner and it's attached with 3M foam squares. The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White with Night Of Navy and a stamp from MFT's Sassy Sayings set. It was cut/embossed with a Nestabilities tag die, sponged lightly with Garden Green, attached with more blue hemp, and is held up with 3M foam squares.

I think it turned out pretty "manly" so I'm happy. Thanks for stopping by!
