A Rockin’ Color Challenge

I had a bad day yesterday in the creativity department.  Wasted a lot of paper. Got nothing done.  It was very aggravating.  So this morning I peeked at the color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.  Real Red, Kraft and Black….PERFECT!  I needed a birthday card to go along with the Guitar Hero for my husband for his birthday.  (Only a couple more days!  Eek!)

You Rock


I used Inkadinkado‘s Rock Star set.  (I just love those wacky strings at the top. lol.)  I tried my best not to turn this into a “road card” since my husband is not a fan of distressing, but I just had to run an inked sponge over the swirly embossed piece.  I had to.  It looked too plain.  (And wow, I didn’t use any patterned paper AND I finished the inside! :) )

This isn’t my favorite card I’ve ever made, but I do like it and I think my husband will too.  :)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

I love the distressing on the CB folder – it adds that little extra —- as well as the stitching and the brads. Keep these great cards coming – I love looking at your creations. Gets me motivated to try something different too.
