Hi everyone! I'm certainly not complaining, but this week has literally flown by! I almost feel like I've somehow lost a couple days, lol! It's time for another fun challenge over at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog and I'm so stoked to shared my DT inspiration project for Challenge #38 - Anything Goes. Come on over and play with us! I think you'll agree that we have some pretty awesome sponsors this time:

Woot-woot! How about that?! ;) I chose the super cool KennyK Stamps 'Frankie Knuckles' image from my stash for my any occasion guy card. I L.O.V.E. this image and what fun this was to color!

Papers and embellishments were kept at a bare minimum for this kind of CAS card. After all, cool guys really don't dig you going overboard with embellishments. This patterned paper looked so good with the navy cardstock, and the only other thing needed were a few gray flat-back pearls.

I decorated the inside with a scrap of the patterned paper used on the front which I layered on the navy cardstock. The front and inside sentiments are from a relatively new stamp set that went perfectly with this image. :D

Proud to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White and In The Navy cardstock, GKD Pool Side 6x6 patterned paper
  • Stamps: KennyK Stamps Frankie Knuckles digi, Paper Smooches Word Salad and Incognito stamp sets
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir- IG1, IG2, IG4, IG6, IG7, FS2, FS3, LY3, CG4, TB1; Black Copic Multi-Liner pen
  • Accessories: MISTI, Doodlebug Design flat-back pearls

I hope you've enjoyed this project and have found a little inspiration to create something for our Anything Goes challenge this time! We know you love that theme! And be sure to check out all the fun goodies at Toadstool PrintablesLacy Sunshine and KennyK Stamps! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
