Let's Craft and Create Challenge #128: Hey, Dude!

I always appreciate a masculine card challenge, because, like most of you, I struggle making them. This month at Let's Craft and Create, our challenge is "Hey, Dude!" The Design Team has come up with so many great ideas, I hope you'll click on over and take a look. But be ready to be inspired!

Here's my contribution to the DT line-up:

This card was made for my brother who wears cowboy boots every day. He loves the western look, and having grown up in Montana and North Dakota, he comes by his fashion sense honestly.

This card was made with mostly unbranded dies.  I've used pens, alcohol markers and Viva D├ęcor pens to add some color and dimension..

My fence posts were made with some craft cardstock that has been stamped with a wood grain background stamp.

Here's a side view that better shows my little twine rope. I have to say, I really loved how that looked once I had adhered it to my card.

Here's a close-up of my cute cowboy boots. I love all the detail on them, and it's so easy to highlight it all with a little bit of coloring.

Finally, here's the inside of my card--a computer-generated sentiment and another horseshoe.

Now it's your turn to create a masculine card and post it here. There is a prize to be won, so make sure you're in the running for it. You've got until the end of the month to enter.

Once again, be sure to check out all the wonderful DT creations on the Let's Craft and Create blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
