Scenic View

Good morning to all my friends, fellow bloggers and anybody who just happened along by chance.  If that is the case then I hope you like what you see and I would love for you to leave a comment.  Happy St Patrick's day to any Irish bloggers - and Happy Birthday to my brother!

My card today is for a young man who needs a little love and encouragement.

My Card

Our Daily Bread Designs Sentiment - Rubber stamp "Keep Climbing" 
Creative Expressions - Rubber stamp "Scenic View"
Creative Expressions die - Auverne 
Die'sire Embossalicious folder - Argyle
Oak leaf and maple leaf punches 
Green pearlescent card from stash

Base card is a 5" x 7" tent fold card made from Papermania card stock. I used the letter press technique with the embossing folder and Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy ink pad.  I used the same ink to stamp the image and sentiment and then die cut it with Sue Wilson's Auverne die from the French collection.  I really like the monochrome look of this card. I still struggle with male cards but I'm happy with this one.

Hope you are all keeping well.
