OCC Color Challenge

Wow!!! It's March & it is Sunday already! I have been just way to busy to post for over as month!!! The weather is gorgeous here so have been doing outside work. Planting flowers, washing windows, riding my new bike etc. My parents were here for a visit from Minnesota & now more company is on the way!! Need a couple of BD cards for this month so just HAD to get into the craft room...darn...;)  I needed some inspiration so went to check out a couple of challenges for help. For the first card I needed a BD card for my FIL. YIKES!!! always a challenge to do a guy card :(  Use the color challenge from OCC for this one. The funny thing is.... the colors really seemed pretty girly to me...so really made it a real challenge for me.
These are the colors:
As you can see I used just a tiny bit of pink...in the DP & for the heart on the colar. My FIL just got a new dog & it looks a bit like this one so that's why I chose this image from American art stamps.
This is my Card:
Brown  & yellow paper is PTI, as well as the Balloon hearts, Dog Image, American art stamps, word stamp by Hanna stamps, DP is Cosmo Cricket. String is from Taylored Expression, Embossing folder from cuttlebug. That's it for this one pretty quick & simple. Now I am off to the office to catch up on some work. Need to get back in the craft room for one more birthday card...hope I can find the time!!
Make it a good one!!

Woo-Hoo -- Gwen is BACK!!! Missed you, BBGF!!! Your FIL's card is waaay cute; I think he'll LOVE it & since he's got a new doggie, it couldn't be more appropriate!!! Great job on the sketch challenge too; I'd probably be too chicken to even try yellow & pink for a guy card, but you carried it off well!!!
