I've been a little busy lately but today I decided I would make a card.  I had 3 different challenges to inspire me, but due to be too busy I didn't make the card in time to submit it to all the challenges.  Anyways here's the card.
The three challenges that inspired this card are: 
  1. Clean & Simple FTL 79
  2. SP Color Combo # 35
  3. Stampin' Royalty Masculine Challenge
The layout is slightly different from the the FTL challenge.  I didn't had the cute ribbon cut on the end of the Glorious Green cardstock.  I thought that was too feminine for this masculine card.  
The colors were a bit of a challenge.  I would never have thought to put these colors together but they work well.  I love the sharp contrast with the black background.  I really like the Only Orange cardstock.  I really need to use it more.
Making the card masculine wasn't too hard.  I just had to find the right stamp and a the Cheers to You stamp set was perfect.  What man doesn't love beer?

If only I had this card done in time to submit it to all the challenges...maybe next time.

I really do enjoy doing challenges.  They make me think.  The best part is I get to try things that I wouldn't necessarily think of on my own.  I really do encourage you to challenge yourself.
