  1. Beautifully done Shani! I love that you could diecut just the anchors to layer on the side steps - that really worked out! The burlap and charm are perfect added elements for this image - the earth tones of the burlap with the blue is really delightful! It's rare for me to feel a masculine card is elegant - but this definitely fits!

  2. This is a fabulous male card, lovely theme and beautifully coordinated elements and papers. Thank you for joining us at 613 Avenue Create this week.
