DCD Sketch Challenge

This week, it's a...


I made this manly card for my adult nephew, and the sketch made it easy to do!

Here's the sketch:

I used black cardstock for the base card.
Patterned papers are from DCWV Amber Autumn matstack.
Caramel colored mat was embossed with Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder.
Arrows were measured and cut with my paper cutter.

I didn't have a cartridge with a beer mug so I made my own using Love You a Latte for the mug and my Fiskars cloud punch for the beer foam, which I trimmed up to look more realistic.

The ovals are cut from Art Philosophy.
Cheers was stamped on cardstock and then trimmed to fit.
I've had those metal embellishments in my stash forever and finally had a chance to use them with some little black brads.

Our sponsor for this week's and next week's challenge is The Scrapbooking Queen
