Friends of Speedy TV First Challenge

If you missed my announcement from Saturday, I am now a Friends of Speedy TV Design Team member.  We will be hostessing challenges each and every Monday.  Today's challenge is all about making masculine cards.  You can find it on Speedy TV.  
Now, if you are anything like me, masculine cards are not easy.  I tend to go with minimal layers and minimal embellishments.  I used browns on my card today.  Most of the card is self-explanatory, but I will elaborate on the main panel.  I stamped my background in Versmark ink and then heat set it.  Next, I punched a heart out of vellum, sponged the negative space with some more Versamark and heat set it.  Finally, I stamped my sentiment over the top of the whole thing.  A mat, some distressing, a string and a card base finish this off!

I hope you will check out the challenge and play along!  Thanks for stopping by! 

Details - Stamps: A Walk in the Woods (MFP), Brick Wall (MFP); Paper: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake; Ink: Versamark, Early Espresso; Accessories: heat tool, heart to heart punch, vellum, brown burlap string, glue dot, stampin' dimensionals.

Nice sketch, Toni, and your vellum heart on the brick wall is great. I always love browns for the masculine cards. Wonderful creation! Glad to be working with you on the Friends of Speedy team.
