Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #29

This is my card for Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #29 hosted by Cassie at Paper Craft Planet:

The challenge colors are: Bermuda Bay (teal), Basic Gray (Dark Gray), Only Orange (Orange) and White Neutral. These were fun colors to work with Cassie. I love them. I made a masculine card as I combined this challenge with the Ways To Use It Challenge at Splitcoaststampers:

The Ways To Use It Challenge was to use an image that had an engine in it. So "Ah-Ha", I had the perfect stamp, a July new release YARD YABBER from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS:

Details about my card: First, I was inspired by Heather's (inglishrea) card from today's SCS gallery: I saw this card and used it for my sketch, except I change the squares to three vertical panels. And I did not leave a white border or use another layer f0r my sentiment. Thank you Heather for your FAB inspiration.

For the BG panels, I distressed them by fraying the edges with open scissor edge, then I crumpled each a little and swiped with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Then I ironed it. I love this look. I got the idea from his website.

I love how the circle frames this image. I used the sentiment to look like grass and go with the verb "mow". I used the orange to stand out and get my message across. I love how it turned out to be a masculine card.

Thank you for visiting me.
