Masculine card for Colour challenge

Good morning everyone,

The new colour challenge at The Outlawz has started. The inspirational photo and colour palette this week was chosen by teamie Cara with the twist to make it masculine. Choose 3 of the colours and come and play this week.

This photo reminds me of our Saturday morning walks at the moment. We do a Park run every Saturday in a lovely park with gorgeous trees and as it is now winter here in South Africa, a large number of the trees have shed their leaves, so the ground looks very much like the photo. A few weeks back we had a very misty morning and seeing the photo made me think of that walk.

As we don't have a sponsor this month Laurian, our team leader is giving a Gift Certificate as the prize.

The DT have made some amazing cards for your inspiration, so do pop over and see what we have for you. I hope you will join us this week,

I decided to go with 3 of the colours and the leaves for my card.

I embossed a card that I had coloured with Pan Pastels.. The design of the embossing reminded me of the trees.

For the leaf diecuts I used a Poppystamps die...gentle leaf. Coloured it with pan pastels as well and attached them with some twine through an eyelet.

Heat embossed the sentiment with copper embossing powder ...it doesn't look very coppery in the photo and attached it with brads.

A fairly simple card, but I rather like the look of it.

Less is more, in my opinion. Your card is elegant in its simplicity. The details make it a show stopper. I love the addition of the twine element as well as your choice of embossing folder.

Thanks for celebrating our 100th post with us at Cut it Up!
