A beautiful day is...

I hope the weekend finds you well, wherever you are in the world :)

Today's card is a more masculine card, and I have to say, it was nice to veer away from my "usual" sketch, of stamp in the right, and ribbon to the left, with patterned paper at the back, lol.

The paper is Kaisercraft Hunt and Gather, which I have embossed with an Ez-Cut embossing folder. The stamp is a 'Verses' stamp, and inked with Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy, then DIed around the edges.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges

Cute Card Thursday Challenge 117 - Clean & Simple
Top Tip Tuesday Challenge 46 - Straight Edges
Charisma Cards Challenge 32 - Distressing
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge 95 - Emboss It

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)
