Have you been to the 365 Cards blog site yet? Well you must go by and check it out here is the address so stop by and take a peek I think you will like the daily challenges. Today will be challenge #4 and they also make it very easy to link your card to their blog.

Now for my card. Yesterday was my wonderful hubby's birthday and I made this card for him. I know that many of us usually sturggle with masculine cards and this card was no different. I dug into some of the books that I have had for at least a decade from Hot Off the Press which contain both card ideas and the supplies to make them. The books have wonderful DP and other paper embellishments that can be cut out and used to make a quick and usually easy card. I found this great piercing template made of paper and thought it would be perfect for my DH's card. I am happy with the results and my he was quite impressed with it as well.

The bonus of this card is it meets challenge #3 on 365 Cards Blog which was to use ribbon, a bow & a button) as well as challenge CAS #4 on SCS which required accenting with dots using either a pen or paper piercer. Don't you just love it when that happens?

I hope you have a glorious day and find some time to stamp and again if you have a moment stop by the 365 Cards blog you will be glad you did.

Peace Out
