With all the fuss of the Holidays, I did not get a card off to my friend who had a very nice promotion at work.  Of course, I wanted to let hime know that I applaud his success.  Because it is a masculine card, I wanted it to be embellishment free yet still have some zing.  The new Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack is just what I need!

I love the look of stamped images on  patterned paper and this paper stck makes it so easy.  It has a definitely masculine look and the larger image stamp sets are really fun to use with this paper stack.  My stamp is from the Bravo Stamp Set.

Black c.s. combined with Isand Indigo c.s. provides a perfect frame for my patterned paper.  Of course, the sentiment stamped in Balck Memento Ink ties it all together.

Aii-in-all, a truly simple card that still has appeal.   I am happy with the way it turned out and I sure hope that my friend likes it.

The countdown is on!  Now we are only hours away from the start of Sale-a-Bration and the release of the new Occassions Catalog!!  Woohoo!  Get your list ready and let the shopping begin!
