Oh No Not Another Boy Card!

There are some cards that I need to make and I immediately
get intimidated! Sympathy cards and masculine cards
are two of them! At least this is only one of those two!
I only fell mostly apart instead of all the way!
After I slapped myself silly (That was not a long trip lol)
I pulled it together and it actually came together quite
nicely!  This is for a friend of ours that had 
open heart surgery a couple of weeks ago.

As you already know receive a lot of inspiration from
Andrea Ewen! I love her work and often like to try some
of her awesome techniques.  I figured I may be annoying her
by always copying her, so a few weeks ago 
 I started practicing some medallions using some of my 
other punches.  And I thought I was coming up with
 something different. She recently used this one, so it may seem as if I am
copying her yet again! Sorry Andrea, I was trying to go 
a little different! I do love your work!

Oh, Stacey - I´m shocked - I missed your blog post and now I´m 2 days late on commenting - so sorry!
Don´t worry - I like your card a lot and I´m pretty sure, so will the recipient!
The decent colors are perfect for a man - and you made it so pretty - inside and out ... as every time!
I like this circular metal embellishment which surrounds your sentiment on the front of your card - very masculine!
