A Personal Challenge...

When women are depressed, they eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. -Elaine Boosler
Today is Anita Be Stampin Challenge day....and this week we have a Super fun sketch!!! I decided to make it a personal challenge as well...to make a Man Card. I always turn down requests for Man Cards, because I never have any in my stash....well I am going to change that!!!

I stamped the birthday cupcake from Rosie's Sweets 4 times in black ink, then punched out a circle on a piece of copy paper and used the hole as a mask to sponge color on each cuppie.

Supplies:
Stamps: Rosie's Sweets (Anita Be Stampin)
Paper: White, Smoky Shadow, New Leaf
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Going Gray, Gable Green, Enchanted Evening, Black
Misc: Hawaiian Shores Ribbon, Martha Stewart Edger, Circle Punch, Stardust Stickles

Here are some challenge details:

One winner will recieve a $15 Anita Be Stampin gift certificate (eligible for use towards the purchase of ABS rubber stamps or digi images) which will be awarded to a lucky randomly selected participant! For your chance to win create a new project using any Anita Be Stampin image (rubber or digi) based on the sketch, and provide a direct link to your entry below. It's easy and fun! ;)

Don’t have any
ABS images yet, but you want a chance to win? No worries! Just join the the Anita Be Stampin Papercraft Planet group where members have access to a free digi image.
