Loads of fun

Happy Monday!  It's time for another challenge at Pause, Dream, Enjoy Challenges!  This week, our challenge is:

For the Boys

This was a fun one! My projects tend toward the girly side of things, so this made me look through my cartridges for cuts that I might not necessarily gravitate toward initially, which can lead to so much inspiration.  I decided that this was a perfect challenge for the B is for Boy cartridge, and then picked out this dump truck.  I had gotten this "Diamond Plate" embossing folder for Christmas, which was a perfect fit.  I used gray cardstock to make it look like the silver plates I usually see this pattern on when I go to the hardware store with my husband.  To finish it off, I put some ribbon along the bottom that reminded me of a street.  :)

Since I don't really have any sentiment stamps that would go with this card, I made my own using Lawn Fawn's "Harold's ABCs."

Are you feeling inspired?  Head over to Pause, Dream, Enjoy Challenges and see the masculine inspiration that the rest of the Design Team has for you, and then make a project of your own for the boys.  :)
