Karen's Doodles challenge - Masculine cards this week!



This week's challenge at Karen's Doodles is to make a masculine card! I am finding them much easier now that I have some "proper" masculine papers! It is so easy to make frilly, flowery pretty cards, and much more challenging (for me anyway) to make a "dude" card!!! But having some good masculine papers REALLY helps!! This paper I used is Tim Holtz's RETRO GRUNGE paper. I LOVE it!!!!


Soooo, this week I made a birthday card for my little nephew who just turned 3. He is into dinosaurs so I used DRAGON VALENTINE (I know, not a dinosaur, but he's close! AND ohh so cute!!!) The CS is Emerald City from Bazzill and the buttons & twine are from my stash!



I hope you will join us this week!

We are opening up the challenge to everyone whether they use a KD image or not. However, only those using KD images will be entered to win the Top Card of the Week prize. So now there is NO excuse not to join us!!!!

You can win the following prizes:

1st Place - 3 Digi stamps of your choice from Karen's Doodles and Card of the Week Blinkie, awarded to the best entry
2nd Place - 2 Digi stamps of your choice from Karen's Doodles
3rd Place - 1 Digi stamp of your choice from Karen's Doodles

THEN, head to the Doodle Diva Gallery and enter your card there for a chance to win MORE prizes!!!!

Have a great week!!
