It's a guy card!







I am really enjoying the criss-cross card. I have a hard time with guy cards...just against my nature not to put on some ribbon or something that sparkles. So this was a bit of a challenge for me. I am sort of happy with the end result.
The DP is some I purchased by the sheet at the scrapbook store, The night of navy & the close to coco are from stampin' up as well as the tab on the top that is made with a stampin up punch. I made the letters with my Big Kick & a xyron sticker maker.
This card is for a challenge where you have to make a card with the word LOVE on it. The Challenge is from
http://challenge-cmutd.blogspot.com/
This is what I came up with. Hope you like it!

I just HAVE to cave and make one of these. This is so very beautiful--in a purely guy kind of way of course! I love how it's so detailed and gorgeous (some guy cards can be plain...) Not this one! YOU'RE the Best, :0) Mel
