Moose Oval

Hi, everybody! I'm back again today with another card!  I made the background with Distress Oxides.  I think this will be suitable for a man; do you agree?


Die: Dee's Distinctively Moose 1 Oval
Distress Oxides: Abandoned Coral, Evergreen Bough, Vintage Photo
Other ink: Your Next Stamp Mocha
Twine:  American Crafts

I was inspired by the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches 458:


My colours were inspired by the challenge at Double Trouble and Color My Heart Color Dare 297, which are nutmeg, glacier, and sorbet. I tried to match my colours as closely as possible. Double Trouble also wanted to see stringed things (I used twine) and asked that we join the Color Dare challenge (done!).


I would also like to support these fun challenges: Crafter's Castle AG Optional More than One Fold 3/3 C10; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; Pile it On Holidays and/or Layers UE; Three Amigos Blog Hop Machine Die-Cutting (Cuttlebug) UE
Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!
