I am so excited to share this ensemble with all of you. This card set is very near and dear to my heart.... it's all for my amazing husband, He is very Patriotic and loves Merica!
The challenge, I was given, was to make FOUR Masculine cards, Birthday, Love/Thinking of You, Anniversary and Encouragement. I must use THREE techniques I have learned so far ( I may have used more, smiles). So sit back and enjoy the ride!

Love/Thinking of You Card
Next up, features my own technique, broken glass...
To finish off, I am also showing a technique I have done and learned years ago- it's called broken glass or stained glass- it is REALLY hard to capture the beauty of this card as an amateur photographer... it's SO stunning and SO awesome in person.
In June, it will be my 19th Wedding Anniversary, I can't wait to give this to my hubs! He will love it!
Before I go, I have ONE more surprise, a 3D decor' piece that is also part of my exam. I needed to alter/up-cycle something. I decided to take a blah wall hanging from Target to make it my own, my youngest graduates next year so I need to start making fun things to have at her party. This will definitely be on display!
