Masculine Card for Fantabulous Cricut #144 and Try Stampin' on Tuesday

I made this card for my sailor son who is serving in the Persian Gulf  using the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #101 and I like how it came out.  It was only after I made the card that I found that I could also enter it into Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #144--"It's a Man's World".  The diagonal striped patterned paper features Outdoor Denim and Honey colors and is from "Tommy", a new paper packet from Close To My Heart that will be released on February 1.  The anchor is from an old CTMH wood stamp set called "Anchors Away".  The hello greeting is from one of my all time favorite stamp sets which is still available from Close To My Heart called "For Every Occasion".  The Outdoor Denim shape below the Silver Shimmer Trim (colored with a Honey alcohol marker) was cut with the CTMH Artiste cartridge and then cut in half.  I used Accent 4, Shift from page 61 cut at 3.25".  The shape was then run through my Cuttlebug using the "Baby's Breath" embossing folder. Since I am mailing this card I wanted to keep the layers down so instead of tying a ribbon knot as shown on the sketch I used an old ribbon punch and used a hole punch to cut out accents (instead of using gems or brads) from the Silver Shimmer Trim and placed them to the right of the focal point.

Here is the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch:

Thanks for stopping by!  Look for my post later this evening with the new Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge.  You still have until 9 PM CT tonight to enter the current challenge of using Close To My Heart colors Indian Corn Blue and Ruby.
Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
