Thanks Katie, for sharing your delightful project in the “Any Sentiment” Challenge! I love the strong visual designs in your papers, the large brads & the sentiment that all contribute to a very masculine card. The details you have added such as the stitching, the angles and of course your delightful coloring really put your card over the top in my book!
