Friends of Speedy TV Design Team-Announcement & Challenge

Hope you all had a great weekend! I am here with some exciting news. Faith of Mark's Finest Papers  has asked me to join a new  team, 'Friends of Speedy TV Design Team'. We are having our first challenge today and hope you'll join in. Here is the link to MFP Speedy TV. It is a fun place with tutorials, chats, videos, forums, and lots of inspiration. Check it out!!! Well be having a new challenge each Monday. Be sure to come along and join us.

Our first challenge is a masculine card. We all need those 'man' cards and sometimes we've made so many other kinds that we don't have one of those on hand. So, now is a good time to get that done.

I'm  using a Mark's Finest Papers stamp set called Autumn Glory. I love stripes and think they can be very good for masculine cards (if they're not pink). :-) I did some sponging around the image to pop it out as I had not colored it. I just thought, for a guy, I would leave it in its natural state. Rest of the recipe is below.

Recipe:
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers-Autumn Glory
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, VersaMagic-Sea Breeze
Paper: Stampin'Up! Night of Navy cardstock, Cloud 9 Designs-Trvl stripe (dbl sided), white cs
Accessories: Spellbinders deckle nestabilitie, Mark Richards gold metal brads, Spare Parts clip by The Paper Studio, crimper
