ODB Color Challenge

This week's challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is a Color Challenge.  I love challenges not only because of the fun of it, and the potential win, but it helps kickstart cardmaking for me ... I tend to get way behind.  For instance, I haven't mailed anything to my son, who lives across the country, anything for several months, and we do not keep in close contact by e-mail or texting.  So, this got me to finally get a card out.  Masculine cards are not my favorite thing to make: I feel more constrained with colors and embellishments, especially with a twenty-something male who is not likely to even notice the card, lol!  But, clean simple cards are what I prefer anyway; the focus for me is always the message.  As with my last card, this is not well photographed, this time because of dark, dreary rainy days.  The leaves are actually more like the peach color represented in the ODB challenge.

Oh, this is a perfect masculine card and I am sure he will love it! Love the layout, use of the leaves and texture as well as the colors you chose to highlight :-) Thanks for playing along with us in the Shining the Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!

What a beautiful masculine card!! I just love the color blocking of the leaf in the corner, your leaves and how it pops against the black. I am so glad to have had you join us at ODBD!!
