AAA CAS Cards Challenge #76

Morning friends, it's time to announce a new challenge for the next 2 weeks
over at AAA Cards and our theme for this one is MASCULINE.

I've two cards to share with you today and first up it's one for 
my Dad's birthday! He loves watercolouring so I decided this cute
Easel die from Paper Smooches would work a treat here.

Other items used are:
Neat & Tangled Punchinella Die, Paper Smooches daddy yo
and 'Happy Birthday' sentiment from Avery Elle.

Next up ... it's always handy to have a couple of baby cards in the box!

This one uses the Petite Baby Shower set from Clearly Besotted with a 
heat-embossed sentiment from Mama Elephant: Just Hatched.

So here's a little photo inspiration for you and don't forget to pop along and
 visit my fellow teamies who have created some spectacular masculine makes!
The links to their blogs are on the main AAA Cards blog HERE plus we have 
one of our previous winners joining us as a Guest Designer for this challenge.
I do hope you'll pop along to visit Joyce's blog (Cards by The Sea)
and leave her some love and friendly comments!

Our lucky winner for this challenge will receive a prize from our
generous sponsors; Stampendous so I hope you'll join us.
Thanks as always for calling by and I'll catch up with you again soon.

  5. Sarah! I love both cards. The one for your dad is wonderful. I love that sparkly dotted panel in back to the easel, and the HBD sentiment on the slant. That little black strip adds so much interest. Love the embossed cup and the blue rhinestones. Just wonderful. The baby card is great too. Love the shades of blue, texture in the paper, and those darling elephants.
