Hand Stamped Sentiments #108 - Color Challenge

Waaahooo, it's time for a color challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments! Totally up my alley... I pulled this manly gem together in just a few short minutes this afternoon before I lost my sunshine for picture taking! 

A simple card but really, what guy wants to see all sorts of 'stuff' on his card, they go in a shop, buy a pair of pants and walk out. No browsing among the shoes, socks or bow ties...simple makes a happy man, at least in my family! Of course now that I'm looking at these color again, I just wish I had a fireman stamp, these colors just scream for a shiny bright red engine.

I embossed my airplane, diamond pattern and sentiment in black, cut out a banner and tied it to the back of the plane with some red and white bakers twine. I used an EF on the Soft Suede, though it's not SU!, I like that it gives the Suede a leather look and feel.

Have a special man in your life that could use a bright fun card? Hop on over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments Blog, enter our challenge and see what inspiring creations the lovely Design Team has whipped up this week!
