Spectacu-lure Day!!


It has been gorgeous here.  We have had temps in the mid 60s and I am loving it!  Spring may just be coming early this year, but I don't want to jinx it. *gigl*  I used an image from Doodle Pantry today for my card.  It is a male intended card; however, I dedicate the sentiment to all my blog buddies.

Here's my card...

I think this is an excellent "male" card, but with splashes of color that a woman can appreciate.  I love this paper from MME.  The colors look like they have been out in the water and have rusted or bleeding.  I tried to pull those colors into the image, but for some reason I had in my head (and I don't fish) that these lures should be these colors.  Funny how the mind works.  The diecut is a svg of a stamp that I enlarged and cut out on my Cricut.  I finished it off with twine, because...well it worked.

I will entering my creation in the following challenges:

Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge: Use Doodle Pantry image
Anything Goes Challenge Blog: Boyz to Men theme
The Paper Shelter Challenge:  For the Boys
Thanks for looking and commenting.

Now get to creating...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
