A Masculine Tent Topper for the Crazy4Challenges

The beginning of August is a busy b'day time for me.....lots and lots of friends have b'days, and quite a few require masculine appropriate cards.  So, I used the Crazy4Challenges goal of making a card in some sort of shape other than rectangle or square to get one of these done.  I used a soon to be released set called Forest Gifts by Mark's Finest Papers for the image, and a second soon to be released set called Wisteria for the sentiment.  I always seem to reach to SU's River Rock when making masculine cards.

I am sure the Crazy4Challenges post is going to be filled with fabulous creations and shapes, so be sure to stop in at the Crazies' Blog to be inspired and dazzled.

This card was also done for Speedy's Friends Challenge which was to also use a different from normal style or shape of card.

This is soooo handsome, Joanne! I've never created a tent card. It's very different, and I love how you matted up those patterned papers. THe forest looks good in black and white, also. THanks for playing with Speedy's Friends this week. :)
