Wild Hardwood

Happy Friday evening!  I have a card to share made for the 500th sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  Number 500?  Whoo hoo, that's a lot of sketches!!  The challenge is to use one of the previous 499 sketches.  For this card I chose SC80.  I'm a week late to the actual challenge because I was out of town on vacation last week, but I still wanted to play along to show my support for the weekly sketch challenges at Splitcoaststampers!

I had need of a masculine birthday card, so being from the Northwest where we all love our out of doors, and after spending a few days camping in the woods in Idaho, I decided to make a card using the tree stamp from Le Jardin, a beautiful, long retired stamp set.

I already had a second card base stamped and ready to go from the last card I made, so I decided to use it for tonight's card.  I ran some Early Espresso Core'dinations card stock through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain embossing folder, and then adhered the stamped tree image on top.  Everything was distressed with the Cutter Kit and sponged with Crumb Cake.  I wrapped some hemp twine (old non-SU) around everything.  Burlap Ribbon was used for the vertical piece in the sketch.

The sentiment is from Four You, which worked great for this rustic, masculine card.

Thanks for dropping by, I'm always so  appreciative of your visits and comments!!  Take care and have a fabulous weekend!
