Masculine Colours!

This week over at Paper Sundaes Challenge blog, the challenge is to use Masculine colours on your card.  This one was so hard to for me...crazy I know.  This card is the final product, but it was a process getting here, let me tell you.
I started out by pulling out my Basic Grey - Oliver paper pad because it had masculine colours.  I picked the papers on Tuesday and the sketch is from MFT - Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch.  Then I thought about it for a few days.  Saturday morning I got up early with the kids and was able to spend a few minutes in the scrap room, but really the brain doesn't work so well before 10 am so this is what I came away with.
It's okay, and definitely meets all the requirements of the challenge and sketch, but I can't say it's a card that I'm proud of...we all make a few of those!  I still had to photograph it and Saturday went by in a blur of swimming lessons, diving, cleaning and laundry.  Then Sunday with church, more cleaning, skating lessons, more laundry and a birthday party.  Whew...still no picture of my card.  So today (Monday) I finally snagged a few minutes alone and made a new card that I am much more proud of.  And, I took pictures of all the cards that I promised you last week and made a few scheduled posts. 

Stamps:  MFT 'Somethings Fishy', Amy R Birthday Sentiments(second card)
Paper:  Basic Grey Oliver, CTMH Outdoor Denim, Seafoam
Ink:  Copic Markers
Accessories: Spellbinders Flowers Die, Misc. Button, Queen & Co Bling.
