Papertake 'Shape Up' + High Hopes Masculine Card Challenges
This is my card for this week's Papertakes challenge which is to use 3 shapes on your card. I have used a square card, the buttons and the Nesties dies. I also noticed that the card fits the theme for this weeks High Hopes Challenge which is to make a masculine card. I have coloured the image with Prismacolors and used Basic Grey papers. The card was for Alex's 10th Birthday on Saturday. I have taken a close up of the dragon so you can see the shimmer and the Glossy Accents.Supplies
Stamps: High Hopes
Tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Embossing Folder, Prismacolors, Sansador, Sakura Clear Stardust Pen, Glossy Accents, Buttons, Distress Inks, SU Thread
DP: Basic Grey
