Dream Catcher

Thanks for all the nice comments on my stampin' space. You are welcome to come over any time to stamp! Since I got my area all clean...I figured it was about time to have some fun messing it up! So, I picked one of my favorite retired sets to play with because I needed a nice masculine card for my hubby's birthday yesterday. In between baking a cake, making a nice dinner- including homemade applesauce to go with the roasted pork loin, I managed to finish this card in time. Yeah, just call me Martha! Unfortunately, I spent most of my day in the kitchen...hopefully today I will spend more time stampin' than cooking! Here's the card I made.

It seems like I always pull out my Weathered background when I go to make a masculine card. I think it works really well with the beautifully detailed images in the Dream Catcher set. The beads I used on this were taken from some old necklaces in my stash, probably picked up at a garage sale. The silver beads are almost the same finish as the brads I used from the pewter Hodge Podge kit. I just tied a piece of linen thread around the brad and strung the beads on, then poked a feather through the hole in the beads.

Stamps: Dream Catcher, Weathered background, It's Your Birthday (inside)
Card stock: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip & Kraft
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Black Stazon & various to water color
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Tearing Edge, Linen thread, Pewter Hodge Podge Hardware
Now, I'm going downstairs to do a little stamping...Hope you find some time to be creative today also!
