Less is More Challenge - Masculine

This is for the Less is More Masculine Challenge set this week. At first I thought that I wouldn't be able to take part in this one because I wasn't sure that I would have any suitable images for the LIM type of card. However my Joanna Sheen owl stamps came into their own again, so thanks Joanna. The card blank is a beige coloured card from Papermill, the owls are stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and the Happy Birthday sentiment is a Docrafts stamp. The flowers at the feet of the owls come from a border stamp that I've had for a few years and I think I got it as a freebie with a magazine. I actually like this card so I'm quite pleased with myself.

  1. I was just looking at your card when I got the comment email for the comment you'd left on mine! :)

    Great card, love those stamps and the brown colour works really well with them. I often use bird stamps on masculine cards, not sure why. This would work well as a Father's Day card, too!
