Work Hard, Play Harder - Guest Designer

2:00 AM
It's my last project for my Guest Spot in May and I thought I'd end with a manly card as it may inspire you to enter this week's challenge.
I sometimes find it difficult to incorporate fancy dies into my masculine projects but with the scalloped edges on the rectangles it made it easy.

Cheery Lynn Dies - Card Maker Scalloped Rectangles (3 sizes), Grass Border and Cuties 2 (used as a border)

I used 3 sizes of the rectangles, 2 for the back panels and the smallest one as a mat for the sentiment.
I added a little ink to the edges to emphasise the scallops.

I kept the inside simple as it is a card for a boy but used the same ribbon as on the front.

I layered the grass to give a little more depth and I think it worked well with this outdoors images.

Finally I used the Cuties 2 die again as a border, I love how well the size of the "beads" on the border match up with the scallops on the largest rectangle.
Well that is it for me, it has been wonderful guesting here at Cheery Lynn Designs and I hope you have enjoyed my projects.
