May D's Stamping Team USA Blog Hop - Masculine

Welcome to D's Stamping Team USA Blog Hop for the month of May our theme is masculine!  Thanks for stopping by and welcome from my friend, Tina's blog!

I was needing a sympathy card, but I needed it to be a bit more masculine.   My card was inspired by this card.
It has a card base of Whisper White thick.  The sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers is stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White regular cardstock.  Here's the details on the scene....
-Cut out a 2 1/2" circle with the punch of Whisper White.  
-Use a post-it note and place across circle to cover part of the circle for the sky area. 
-Using a sponge dauber sponge with Sahara Sand to create the bottom part of the scene.
-Place the post-it over the bottom part you just sponged.
-Place a 1" circle cut out of post-it note (use the sticky part to keep this in place) for your sun.
-Sponge Calypso Coral in the top part of the scene for the sky.
-Sponge Soft Sky towards the top of your scene and along the edge.
-Remove the post-it notes.
-Stamp in Cucumber Crush the grass/plant stamp from the Wetlands stamp set.

The scene is popped with Stampin' Dimensionals and the 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White piece is adhered with snail.

I hope you have enjoyed my card!  Thanks for stopping by and check out the next blog in our hop, Deb!
