i know, i know, it's quite pared down isn't it? but i needed a somewhat minimalist guy card, for a somewhat minimalist guy, lol! by order of this week's challenge at shopping our stash we are "going green" for which you can either make a card which incorporates a recycled element (mine uses an old army green hanging file-- from which the hanger part had detached itself-- as both its base and the mat layer under the sentiment panel) or features the color green (i think that bit is fairly self-explanatory on my card!) or, of course, you could do BOTH!
(recycled: dark green hanging file folder; patterned paper: basic grey, 7 gypsies, echo park; alphas: making memories fabric letters, woodgrain thickers, jenni bowlin tiny type; ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)
for my layout, i used this week's retro sketch, and pretty faithfully, at that!
thus i'm linking up with my lovely and uber-creative friends at opus gluei who are feeling a little sketchy this fortnight; and also with patrice's 52-card pick up, at the old back porch!
and now, i hope you will have a little look through your stash... and maybe also your TRASH? and then join us this week at SOS! ♥
