Good Morning Everyone!

Today's card comes to you from my post on Card-a-Day Blog.  Our theme is "Congratulations".  Below is my card:

As I said in my other post, I wanted to make a more "manly" card but added a splash of color so that it could be sent to either gender :)

I used the Tommy paper pack from Close to My Heart because I just love the coordinating colors it uses.  I cute the three strips at 1 5/8" x 4".  I then cut a strip of paper measuring 3/4" x 5 1/2" using Honey cardstock - a coordinating color.

The frame comes from the Frame Flair stamp set and was stamped with Outdoor Denim ink.  I also used that stamp set to stamp on the Honey cardstock strip to give it a little more dimension..  The sentiment "Congrats" comes from a stamp set called "Kudos" that comes with the Artiste Cricut cartridge bundle.  It was stamped with Honey ink
