YCU Blog Hop - Masculine Card

This is the last stop on this Young Crafters Unite blog hop. You should have arrived here from Erin's blog. If you've just stumbled upon this hop here, please go to the YCU blog to start at the beginning!
We have two sponsors for this hop, Simon Says Stamp and Paper Smooches. So since I love Paper Smooches stamps, I decided to make a masculine card for this hop using stamps from Paper Smooches. Here's the card I made:

Stamps by Paper Smooches

I stamped the penguin, and colored his beak orange. I then drew in a tie and a briefcase for him, and colored them too. I added some sparkle to the buckle on his briefcase with a glitter pen, and some shine to his beak using Crystal Lacquer. I chose the sentiment Congratulations, thinking this would be a card one could give to a man who's gotten a promotion at work, gotten a new job etc. I also added more of the same colors from the image, by matting the image piece with orange and adding blue flag-shapes. 

I hope you've enjoyed hopping along on this bloghop today! Hopefully you've gotten some inspiration on masculine cards =)  Be sure to check out both of our sponsors for some great papercrafting products!

This is the last stop on the hop. If you've missed any of the hops on the way, you can go back to the YCU blog to see the full list of participants.

Thanks for hopping along in this bloghop today!
