A La Card Monkey #106

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I am so excited that I'm about to bust at the seams!!  I was selected to be a Guest Designer over at A La Card Monkey!  After months of applying to different blogs to be on design teams and getting shot down (insert sad face here), I was super excited to be asked to be a Guest Designer!!

This weeks' sketch is combined with the theme "Something Blue."  I love blue!  And I don't know about you, but I always struggle to make "manly" cards.  For some reason, I instantly gravitated to The Open Sea for this card.  Here's the great sketch:

And here is my interpretation:

 I kept thinking this card needed "something" else, but I decided to quit while I was ahead.  Besides, most guys probably don't want a lot of frou frou on their cards!

A BIG thank you to Terry and Shirley for asking me to be a Guest Designer at A La Card Monkey.  I hope everyone pops over there to check out the inspiration and enter the weekly challenge!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
