Lets Hear It For The Boys!

Hello Flourishes Friday Friends! Today we're going to continue on our theme of masculine cards that we began last week, giving you some more great inspiration for that guy in your life! The Senior Design Team is picking any set in our Flourishes Stamp Collection and showing off their masculine designs to you today.
You can also play along and show off your masculine designs for a chance to win a goody bag from Flourishes.  Check out the Flourishes blog for details!
One last thing before I get to my card today.  This is my last post as a member of the Senior Design Team with Flourishes.  The time has come for me to make more time for my family this summer.  The boys are getting bigger and the activities, well, they are getting bigger too.  So, sadly I have to say goodbye to Flourishes for now. 
Okay, now for my card.  I chose the Fathers Day stamp set and stamped the image using a Versa Magic Dew Drop in Nightfall on Flourishes Classic Kraft card stock.  I then stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink overlapping the image.

I sponged the edges with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain then distress them.   A simple piece of Chocolate Seam Binding with some ivory jute and a button finish it off.   The patterned background paper is from the Kaiser Hunt and Gather paper pad, but the polka dot is a scrap and I can’t remember which pad it came from. 
I know you'll be inspired and come away with some great manly ideas! So stop by and see:
Thanks to all of you who regularly stop by to see my Flourishes creations.  Things will be slow for the summer…slower I should say, as I have already scaled back quite a bit, but I will still be here posting when I can.   Have a wonderful weekend!

Now this is simplicity at its best! It's quite a big step to be leaving Flourishes. They're a hard team to say goodbye to, but I completely understand. I know you'll enjoy having more time to focus on your family. Best wishes to you, and I'll be checking in to see what you're up to.

Well lady, :( it's sad to have this be a last comment for now....take good care of you and your family!

It's a beauty of a card too - the sponging is really rich for the image and I love how the sentiment intertwines with the image.

Hugs Danielle!

I am so sorry to see you leave, Danielle, I cannot think of another designer who inspires me as much as you have. Your style is soft and always unique. I wish you only the best and I hope you come back to Flourishes soon!

I love your sepia vintage look and the colors you chose! I love the Kraft and purple combination, I would never have thought of it and I love it!
