Card of the Week: My Greatest Card Making Challenge

My greatest card making challenge is creating cards that would be suitable for boys or men.

As the mother of two girls, my scrapbooking supplies are overflowing with pink and purple patterned papers, flowers, ribbons, jewels and all other things girly. Not really the stuff you would necessarily want on a card for your husband or father.

When I sit down to make cards I have to make a conscious effort to make a few that are male-orientated.

This week I came up with this:
Card Base: Recollections; Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny; Rub-On, Brad, Buttons: American Crafts; Bird: Jillibean Soup; Twill Tape: my craft stash; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, Glue Dots

Was I successful?

I think so.

No pink. No flowers. Nothing girly.

I am ready for the next guy in my family to have a birthday.
