Graphicat Sketch #9

Good Morning Bloggers! I'm here this morning with another fab sketch from Graphicat Sketches!! I really love the flourish elements in this one (even though I didn't use them in my sketch! lol).

This is my FIL's birthday card.  I used a whole lot of Tim Holtz goodies on it. His stuff is always good for a masculine card :) 

The background circle was cut with my Cameo and the flourish and banner are Tim Holtz dies. I cut out a piece of paper from Tim's paper stash and glued it into that bottle cap. I kinda love how it looks together :)

The image is from Tickled Pink and you can get them in rubber at Graphicat Designs, but only until they're gone, because Tickled Pink is no longer making rubber stamps *sad face*. So if you're a lover of the rubber like I am, you'll want to get em while you still can. (Sorry, this one is gone, but there are a lot of other fab stamps including Cheri's (Graphicat) own awesome stamps, Simply Betty and Whimsy stamps! Go check it out!)

So...whaddya think?! Think my hubby's dad will like his card? 

Now it's your turn! Go forth and create!! And link it up at Graphicat Sketches for a chance to win some digis!

I'm entering this into these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show: One For the Boys
Corrosive Challenges: Not too Shabby (shabby/vintage)

I'm kinda lovin' the bottle cap/paper combo too, nice job!!! He'll definitely love the card, especially if he's a cool type of guy! Somehow I keep missing Cheri's challenges, I'll have to make a REAL effort to get in on this one! Hugs, Roxy.

Great masculine card! Your coloring is fabulous, and I love all the Tim Holtz embellies. That bottle cap came out fantastic, a super idea (might have to borrow that sometime!). I have no doubt your FIL will love it. Thanks so much for joining us at The Corrosive Challenge!
