For the Boys Blog Hop

 Hi Everybody!

Welcome to the For the Boys Blog Hop!  We all know how hard it can be to create guy/boy themed projects, so this hop will help you with that!  You'll find tons of inspiration for the men and boys in your life!!

If you came here from GINA'S blog, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon this Blog Hop, make sure to head over to JENNY'S BLOG so that you see the full hop from the very beginning.

I often have difficulty with masculine cards.  For some reason or another, they seem to always lack something.  So I decided to challenge myself by participating in this blog hop.
For my project today, I made an any occasion card.......basically, I didn't put any specific sentiment in the inside so I can use it for anything.  LOL

To create it, I started with a black A2 sized card, added a striped mat then an orange mat and finally my stamped mat.  The stamp set is from CTMH.  I distressed it along the edges and used my Tim Holtz distress ink in tea dye along the edges and across the card.
