Life ~ Enjoy The Ride {a masculine card}

I had fun playing with the Enjoy Life stamp set.  I pulled out my Wishes card design book and chose to use the Sun Dial pattern for my card.

I clear embossed the bike image and the sentiment, and I rubbed some Sky ink with a sponge over the Outdoor Denim embossed bike.

I didn't use any B&Ts on this card, instead choosing to create my own patterned paper by stamping with Sky and Sunset inks with the Two-Step Backgrounds stamp set.  I also used Brown Bag ink on Kraft cardstock to stamp the woodgrain image from the Universal Backgrounds set.  And using some of the images from the Enjoy Life set, I random stamped with Outdoor Denim ink onto the Sky cardstock to create some depth and pattern behind the focal images.

Then I simply added some White Hemp and buttons to complete the masculine look/feel I was going for.

I hope you like my card as much as I do!

Until next time, happy creating!  :)
