Top 3, and a new sketch

Good Afternoon,

This week at Simply Stampin' is sketch week. I needed to make my step dad's birthday card for Monday so I thought I'd use this weeks sketch to make it. I have distressed some Newsprint DSP teamed up with the colour Bravo Burgundy, I thought is I wanted to use the retired set Studio Sketches for his card that the burgundy colour would go great with the wine stamp that I wanted to use.

I know we all think that you can't use ribbon on a masculine card, but I think as long as you don't go the whole hog and add a bow, and remember to use masculine colours its fine, so I've used (also retired) Basic grey taffeta ribbon.

I am also very excited that I've got top three for my last weeks card, I've been joining in with the challenge blog every week since it started, and I'm ecstatic that I've made top three for a challenge! Check out the banner in my side bar.

So here is my card

I hope that he and the girlie's over at the challenge like it. I'd love to know what you think, so please feel free to leave me a comment.

Enjoy the weekend
