Wagon Wheel

Ok remember in the previous post when I mentioned that I had gone on Doodle pantry... well of course I went shopping... well... they had a sale if you spent 6$ you got 30% off... and on top of it there's a wonderful freebie set with purchase.  So just HAD to shop right?!?

I was actually looking for some masculine digis because I'm always out of inspiration for masculine cards.  And my Father-in-laws b-day is coming up and I had no card for him.  Actually it's at the end of next week so really need to mail it out this weekend if I want him to get it in time... So I found the perfect image for this card.  And I got lazy... I used one of the 2 colored version.  I also printed the other one for a later card.

For this card I used paper from MME - Dilly Dally.  I followed another color inspiration to help me get this done.  I used my large deckled rectangle for the cutting of the digi and the sentiment (also from the DDP set).  I added some Robin's nest dew drops.  The sentiment was edged with Brushed corduroy distress ink.  I used my Tim Holtz distresser all around to give it a more roughed up look.

Here's a closer look at the image and the sentiment
To make this card I followed this sketch:
 I had trouble because for some reason the sketch doesn't show up on my computer from the main page of the challenge...

And I followed this color inspiration

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. easy-as-1-2-3-challenge-group - 1 sentiment, 2 DP and 3 embellishments (my 3 Robin's nest dew drops)
  2. Outlawz challenges - Sketch
  3. ibsic-52-our-last-challenge - Color inspiration -this is there last challenge :(  
Ok I have one more on the way...  for another freebie challenge that I had found through some blog friends!
