Dirt Ridin' Dude
Well, it's the last week of April, but here in western PA, it feels more like the last week of July...it's officially 87 degrees and the sun is out in full force. Seems we skipped right over Spring again this year! And surprise, surprise, our A/C is on the fritz...I actually worked up a sweat finishing up the last of this month's Clear Dollar cards. Which brings me to this first one, which uses the "Dirt Rides" set (check it out here). One of our challenges this month from our design team leader Laurie (check out her awesome blog!) was to make a card using no patterned paper. Thanks to dies and embossing folders, this wasn't too difficult! Here's the fine print:

Stamps: "Dirt Rides" from Clear Dollar Stamps
Inks: Staz-On "Timber Brown"; Ranger "Walnut Stain" Distress
Cardstock: SU Kraft, Garden Green & Old Olive
Dies/Embossing Folders: Sizzix Originals "Tree, Pine"; Spellbinders Nestabilities "Small Labels"; Cuttlebug "Distressed Stripes" and "Shell Collage"
Embellishments: SU "Aged Copper" Hodgepodge Hardware (brads & label frame); Foof-a-La by Autumn Leaves buttons; SU linen floss; yarn

In just a little while I'll post my final CDS card for the month (unless I get lucky and can get another one done!), this time featuring the "Woodland Critters" set...so stay tuned, and thanks for stopping by!

So cool! I like the softer colors with the bike and the trees look great.

Hey, this is great! I like those trees placed around the main panel and all the hardware and rough accents really make for a manly card.

You really layers things nicely on your cards. I like the trees on this one,
