Pile It On Challenge #84 - Friend/Friendly Hello

Hello friends!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you've had a great weekend, filled with lots of crafty goodness.  We have been doing nothing, but relaxing.  My daughter just finished the first week of her senior year.  I was slightly emotional on the first day of school, but in all, I'm a very proud mama.  I cannot wait to see all of the things she's going to accomplish.

It's Sunday, which brings us to another Pile It On challenge.  This weeks challenge is Friend/Friendly Hello.  Our sponsor this week is Inky Impressions.  This weeks winner will receive a $10 GC to their online shop.  Awesome, right?!

Here is the card I made for this weeks challenge.

I have a friend who LOVES this color combo.  It's his favorite, and I wanted to try to use it for a masculine card.  I think I'm obsessed with stencils right now.  I want to use them on EVERYTHING. lol  I have to say, I really like how this turned out.  My focal cluster on the left hand side is simple, yet adds just the right bit of "something".  And I love those distress inks.  They're fabulous and blend beautifully.  I do hope the recipient of this card enjoys it as much as I do.  I am going to submit this for the following challenges.

Simon's Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments Challenge #139: Fall Fun + Sentiment (my colors are very fall-ish)
CASual Chic #2:  Pretty Patterns
 Bloggers Challenge: Come Fly With Me (I have a wood veneer airplane on my card)
Just Us Girls #308:  Sketch (my interpretation)

That's all for me today.  I hope you'll head over to see what my PIO friends have created for you today.  They're all pretty amazing!

Stay crafty my friends!

Oh, I never thought of using my stencils for a man card! Always think I have no stamps, but this is a great idea. I love these colors too! Perfect!
