Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Masculine Card

The ever talented Elaine is the hostess for this week's Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge. Elaine chose for us to make a Masculine card.  I always enjoy making guy cards and Mo has lots of awesome images to choose from.  I chose Harvard for my project: 

My Grandson, Hayden, wears glasses and this could be him.  He loves to dress preppy and he is only 8. He is very smart and  cute.  I have been told I shouldn't put bows on boy cards so I tied a knot in the twill at the bottom, added three dew drops at the top, a You Totally Rock sentiment printed on vellum, and my masculine card is ready to give to my grandson for his birthday.

I tried to keep the colors softer on this one, I think I succeeded. Harvard is colored with copics and sponged with weathered wood distressed ink. I used my SU spiral punch for the notebook page,it is actually dp made to look like an old ledger page. I punched the photo corners with my SU photo corner punch.

I bought some vintage charms at Michael's a couple of week's ago and this pencil was one of them, thought it would be perfect for a school oriented card.

Hope you like this masculine card and be sure you check out the rest of the DT projects, they always blow me away!!!

I am lucky I have a laptop I toggle to my cell phone for my wireless internet connection because otherwise I could not post this as we had a bad storm blow through Omaha tonight and we are without power.  Last time we had this bad of a storm it took two days to get it back.  My not always so bright husband has the generator out at the farm, he may have to go get it.  It won't run the air conditioning but it will keep the refrigerator stuff from spoiling and I can make coffee...Do you hear me Marlene!!!????

Thanks for stopping by.  If you don't see comments from me tomorrow you will know we are still out of power.
