Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

The April challenge from PTI this month was all about men or boys...make a masculine or a boy card......now I have to admit this is my weakest spot in card making....I much prefer making "girlie" cards....I had to get real creative this month...I used Papertrey's Take A Bough for both cards...those little round ornaments come in really handy ..... making it a very useful set year round.  The ribbon on the first card is a Twill also from Papertrey.....I love twill ribbon and it seems a good choice for "boys"...the sentiment was computer generated.

The second card I cut a tree base from my Cricut and stamped the polka dot ornament from the same set, punched it out and made my tree top
to make it a "bit" more "manly"... I tied a washer on my ribbon...funny!

They are both so unique and creative. The first one is so darn cute and perfect for a male. It is so bright and cheerful and kind of reminds me of the Olympics. The second one is so lovely with the vibrant red and lovely moss green! Wonderful!
