June 2014 Diva Dare - Day 10

Howdy! Jen here with day 9 of this month's Diva Dare! This month it's all about the men!

 This month we're daring you to create a stamped card or project with a masculine theme. 

When it comes to masculine I always find that clean and simple seem to work well for me (and I know it's the kind of card my husband likes so it's win-win)! I started with choosing a color scheme. To do that I just started grabbing cardstock and laying them out on my desk until I found a palette of colors that I liked. Next I went about embossing different pieces and getting a layout sorted out. I wanted to go with the Wonderful Marvelous stamp set because I just LOVE how whimsical it is.  To finish off I dug through my supply of epoxy dots and mixed and matched until I found matching colors to my color scheme. This really went together very fast and I love how it came out!
