Dude Hang Ten Card

 photo Dude Hang Ten Card.jpg
Card challenge blogs are a fun way to use your craft supplies and make you "think ouside the box." This was the case when I decided to play at the UnstampaBelles Challenges. You cannot use stamps with their challenges. My brain did not even know this was possible when I started making this card! (Big wink!) Every idea which came popping in my head involved a stamp. Finally though I came up with what I think is a good "try" for my first card there....but I tell you I had to re-train my brain. (Wink.) My "dude" card is playing at the following challenges:
UnstampaBelles Challenges (To the men in our lives...TWIST add an animal or bird)
Crafty Cardmakers (Here Comes Summer)
Make My Monday (At The Beach)
My Time To Craft (Summertime)
Use Your Stuff (Try Something New--I tried embossing over rub-ons for the first time.)
