Chair-ished Friendship


Happy Friday!  I'm not celebrating quite yet as I have a long day ahead of me at work.  However, the adorable Miss Kenzie will be there so at least there will be puppy snuggles to help pass the time!  In the meantime here's a card for the Tuesday Trigger challenge at the Moxie Fab World and also for Unity's Friends With Flair hop.  I was inspired by the blue chair in the picture and also by the grid heart.  I decided to go a bit more masculine for my card as I needed one for a male friend. The chair is from Unity's December 2011 KOM and I used A Bit of Burlap on the frame to tie in the grid pattern.  I played around a lot with how to apply the sentiment but in the end a simple strip of card stock underlining it seemed to fit just right.  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Chair from Dec '11 KOM - Filled With Love, A Bit of Burlap) Unity Stamp Co, (Sentiment from On My Couch) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Marina Mist) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Nestabilities Small Labels) Spellbinders

Kelly Griglione said...

Now seriously Jen, who would have thought that you could come up with a masculine card from that completely and utterly feminine inspiration photo?!? That is a whole other challenge in itself! Love the result, the blue looks striking on the red!

Maureen Morton said...

Beautiful take on the trigger - and how you made it masculine is beyond my humble imagination. Love how you "tamed" this color combo.
