Color Dare #86 Masculine Cards

I have exciting news to share with you. Color My Heart has asked me to be a Guest Designer this week. I am deeply honored and have the utmost respect for these weekly designers as they continue to inspire others. As you can see from the picture below, the colors that you must use are Ponderosa Pine, New England Ivy and Goldrush.

I decided to create 2 cards using this color combination because, quite frankly, they are not my typical go-to colors and it can be a struggle to come up with masculine card designs. But that's the beauty of this challenge; to challenge us to use color combinations we wouldn't typically think up on our own. You are welcome to incorporate neutral colors into your design.

Recipe: (All products by CTMH)
Paper: Timberline, Sarita, Flirty (retired), Bamboo CS, Chocolate CS, Colonial White CS 
Stamps: Chantilly Card WOTG (retired), Camper Crazy, Catch U Later, Card Chatter-Sympathy (retired)
Inks: New England Ivy, Chocolate, Goldrush
Tools: Blending Pen, Heat Gun, Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Paper-Piercer, New England Ivy Marker, Whisper Alcohol Marker
Other: New England Ivy brads (retired), Bamboo brads (retired), Chocolate Embroidery Floss (retired)

I encourage you to participate in this challenge. Thank you for stopping by. Have a fun-filled, crafty weekend!
