Masculine Seasonal Thinking of You

If you are anything like me, making a guy friendly card is hard to do! As I was using the Watercolor Winter stamp set to make my Christmas Cards the wood and the pine needles reminded me of my daddy and I felt inspired to make a non-christmasy card! I used a few different techniques including distressing, sponging, and embossing with my Big Shot. And not only am I showing you the end product, but I think this time... I'll let you see my trial and error process of building it. Here goes!

      too boring/not enough contrast!              better but the bkgrd is still to blah!  

                                eh, kinda neat but not quite there               nice contrast....good color...
