So Bronc Buster has sat unused for weeks on my shelf. It lends itself to more masculine cards, another struggle for me. My jumbo eyelets sat unused as well. I felt a challenge coming on!!
Keep it simple is my theme for this card, don't ruin it with ribbon or other girly embellishments, LOL! For some of us a card that seems so simple can actually be very difficult. Somehow it seems so unimpressive after you work on layers, techniques, embellishments, ect.
One thing that really helps a simple card is designer paper, it adds so much for so little effort. Here I used the Apple Cider paper from the mini catalog. It dictated the color choice making that process easy as well. I have always liked really rust even though it doesn't get a lot of play time. The main image is stamped in chocolate chip on river rock...now there is a color I am lovin' and using a ton!! The spice on the card comes from the jumbo eyelet and brads. Men like hardware and these jumbo eyelets fit that bill.
Thanks for stopping in!
