Today I am using three challenges on this card. I know, it's a very clean and simple card and I used three challenges!! I started with the Paper Players Challenge #214 (clean and simple masculine card). The Creative Challenge Club #14 was used for the colors (use some or all) and the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge #93 was used for the sketch (I did turn the sketch 90 degrees for my card).
For the base I chose Naturals Ivory card stock. A piece of Trim the Tree designer paper was layered on Hello Honey card stock. Natural Trim Ribbon (retired) was attached to the layer. The sentiment from the Tag Talk stamp
set was heat embossed on Hello Honey card stock with VersaMark and Early Espresso embossing powder. It was punched out with the Label Bracket punch. I matted it with Old Olive card stock cut out with the same punch and cut in half to use as the mat. A piece of Moonlight designer paper was cut with the smallest Banners Framelit. Old Olive was cut with the next larger framelit and used to mat the smaller one. The banner was slipped under the ribbon and the sentiment was popped up with Dimensionals. For a finishing touch I added three Cajun Craze Candy Dots. There you have it - clean and simple and, I think, a good guy card. In the future, I'd like to see if I can turn it up a notch with more detail. When I get to it, I'll post it here. Won't be for a week or so because I have to prepare for a class a week from Saturday. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful fall weekend.
