March Viva La Verve #3

Okay, so this card is totally out of my comfort range but I just went with it.  I'm still not sure I completely "love" it but it works for a masculine anything card and those are always nice to have around.

I'm really enjoying playing around with Viva la Verve sketch and inspiration challenges.  The sketches are always great and the inspiration is an added challenge that helping me to broaden my creative chops.  Unfortunately, I only have 2 verve sets and they don't always work with the sketch.  As it was, I had to flip the sketch around.  I was inspired by the kitchen with the blue and stainless steel accents.  A kitchen I believe my husband would be totally into if we were redoing our kitchen (again) A fairly basic and easy card and fast too if you took out the white embossing step. 

There you go, a fairly simple card and fast too if you took out the white embossing step on the bike.  If anything, I hope it inspires you for those difficult male cards.  Thanks for looking and have a fabulous night.

Paper:  Kraft cs, Basic Black, Brilliant Blue, silver fiber paper
Ink:  white craft, basic black
Accessories: White embossing powder, black marker, 1/4" circle punch, blue buttons (BG), swirl ef (CB)
Stamps: Everyday Button Bits (PTI)
