Convention swaps Day #1

Hello!  Guess what?!  I am on my way to Utah!  Wooo hoooooo! :)  I wanted to start sharing some of the swaps I made to take with me so here we go!  First one is for a Masculine card swap that I am participating in.  As I have mentioned before, I always struggle with these cards, so I am looking forward to getting some new ideas.  Here is the card I made to swap:

Manly colors, manly plants and manly brads!  No frills, no buttons and no flowers!  I embossed the whole background with the Stripes background folder and added a paper border. I stamped the fern  leaf stem looking thing three times withuout re-inking in between to give the illusion of layers.

This was a fun card to make and fortunately was pretty quick to assemble. 
 I made 33 of these.

I will be back soonest with more to share!  Hope you are having a nice day!
