The Same ... But Different ...

Today's challenge over on SCS was to create two cards using the same image/supplies. Okay, you have all heard me say (recently, in fact), that "dude" cards are really a struggle for me. And TWO dude cards using the same stuff??? Yikes!!

This is what I came up with. I actually am really LOVING this Nautical Expedition DSP. I will probably have to buy at least ONE more package of it. At least it gives me a "jumping off" place for making a guy card!





Here is a close up of the "vertical" one ...











And here is the "horizontal" one ...

Keywords: TLC321 SUO Masculine
Stamps: The Open Sea, Punch Pals
Paper: Early Espresso, Whisper White, Nautical Expedition DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Early Espresso, Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Wide Oval Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Early Espresso 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Vintage Brads, Pop-Up Glue Dots



Don't miss this month's Control Freaks Blog Tour, either ... it should be up and rollin' by tomorrow night!!!



Gotta dash ... 'cause I'm REALLY gonna be late for work. Good thing I'm my own boss, or I'd hafta fire myself, right??!!??

Love your cards - as always...especially the paper piecing. You come up with some of the greatest ideas for making a image pop!
