Blogger's Challenge--a sketch

We all love sketch challenges--right!  Well our dear host mom knows that so she is sure to give us at least one sketch each month and this is the sketch for January!


I chose to go with a  masculine card for today.  This new stamp set Plane and Simple is perfect for masculine cards. Don't you think?  I think it was one of the best investments I have made in a long time--pretty versatile in my opinion. 


Such a cool card if I do say so myself, lol.
Stamps: Plane and Simple, In Stitches Jumbo Wheel --taken off wheel and cut into individual stamps
Paper: Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla and Botanical Gazette dp
Ink: Early Espresso and Very Vanilla
Other: brads, dimentionals 

Hope you have a great week! If yo have time head on over to Lisa's blog to see who else has played along this week--we now are using Mr. Linky!

What a wonderful card! Love it. Would be awesome for big boys or little boys (smile), but that is sexist, lots of women love to fly! Great card, Mary Jo. Excellent.
