10/12/2016 Update: Top Three winner in the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #180.
This paper collection has been stowed away in my stash and I decided it was time to use it for a challenge card. I consider the card to be gender neutral but it could easily be categorized as masculine.
A panel of spotted DSP was adhered to a green cardstock card base. The inside of the card base was lined with white cardstock and decorated with a strip of DSP. The next layer was created by adhering the acorn print to a panel of cardstock, backing it with foam tape and adhering to the card base at an angle. The next layer was made by adhering the wood grain design onto a cardstock panel, backing it with foam tape and adhering. A small bit of copper glitter
