DCBD #132

Another week has went by and it is Diva Coffee Break Designs sketch challenge time again. I love the colors in this sketch. I would love to have made a card using flowers, but there is a special holiday this Sunday. I decided I wanted to make the card for my husband. You know when your business is making cards and such you better make a card. It doesn't look good for your business if you don't. At least I don't think so.
This is what I came up with for the card. You will have to tell me what you think. Some of you may be saying it looks childish. I have to agree with you, if you are thinking that. My husband, you see, loves airplanes. I wanted to make an airplane for him. I decided to use my punches to come up with it. I think it turned out really cute. When it was finished I thought the bear from the Cute and Cuddly set would be so cute to use as the pilot. Even though it looks childish, I know that my husband will love it. That is all that matters. I will have to remember and sometime make one similar for a baby card though.

I hope that you have been inspired by seeing this card to want to make a card yourself. Like I said the color sketch is great this week. If you do participate remember and go to the DCBD blog, which you can get to it from here, and sign up. I try to visit every one's blog to comment on your creations too.

Recipe for this card: Stamp sets: cute and cuddly and all holidays Card stock: bashful blue, whisper white, kraft, night of navy, and always artichoke Tools: large oval punch, star punch, large star punch, slit punch, paper piercing tool, white uniball gel pen, and stamping sponge Accessories: 1/4" whisper white grosgrain ribbon and soft subtle brads (bashful blue)

That's not childish at all! That is GORGEOUS and perfect for your bear of a man. He is going to just love this. I wish I had that bear - my hubby would love this card too (loves airplanes)!
