Sketchy Trees...

I think that I shall never see a billboard lovely as a tree. Indeed, unless the billboards fall, I'll never see a tree at all. -Ogden Nash

I pulled out my Artistic Outpost Home set this weekend to make some Manly cards...I sat down with the set and 3 Basic Grey pads...Archaic, Boxer and Granola. For this card I used the Weekend Sketch Challenge hosted by Jen Balcer...I think the paper may be a little busy for the image, but I still think overall it works.

A simple Manly inside ;)

Stamps: Home, Bluebird *for the sentiment (Artistic Outpost)
Paper: Archaic (Basic Grey,) Textured Card (DCWV,) Very Vanilla (SU)
Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa (SU)
Misc: Button, Yarn, Distressing Tool

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. The background reminds me of a field...beautiful card Rach!!

  2. I LOVE this! I don't think the paper is too busy at all! And I love the inside!!

  3. The paper has a nice mountain-background feel. I think it works well. Should I be excited?
