ATCAS Masculine

It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS and this week's challenge is sponsored by
  Andrea over at Annabelle Stamps!!
Andrea has offered a $10 discount voucher at her store!!
The code word this week is one that I struggle with!
Masculine cards are so hard for me!  I guess I am just a frilly girl at heart and I like to use flowers, doilies and soft, feminine colors. lol I used some challenges at clean&simple and The Play Date to help me out a little bit.
If you are ever stuck with a card, it really does help to pick out some challenges to work from. Even if you are too late to enter the challenge or have no plans on entering the challenge, it really does help to have somewhere to start!  As soon as I saw this sketch I immediately knew I wanted to put a clock there where that circle image is.  And the little gears were perfect for underneath the sentiment strip.  I finished my card off with a little spritzing.
Stamp Sets: Clockworks, Daring Adventure, Delightful Dozen
Cardstock: So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy, So Saffron
Tools: Corner Rounder, Color Spritzer

  6. Great masculine card Shana! I am your newest follower and would love for you to come visit and follow my blog as well. I will be visiting you often. :)

  7. Password protection is an ideal way to protect sensitive information you prefer only those authorized have access to.
    Fortunately, our minister has neither, and he's asked very little of us as well. An increasing number of marrying couples (particularly those entering second or later marriages) will request that guests refrain from giving gifts.
