Used new stamp set from ODBD

This card is made with one of the stamp sets I chose from Our Daily Bread Designs for being a recent random winner in the monthly challenge at OWH! Isn't it great? The set is called "Special Boy" and there are 8 stamps in it. Not bad, eh? Fun to get a neat set for masculine cards: free!

My card is based on this week's OWH sketch, although I tweaked it a little:


I'm also posting at the January ODBD challenge, which is to use stripes. Do you think the checkered ribbon makes it too feminine? I was going for that checkered flag look but I'm not sure about the ribbon. The DP is "Postale 6x6" by 7 Gypsies; Candi dots colored with silver pen; Washi tape.

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to ODBD for supporting OWH! Have a good week.

Great image for a guy or boy. I think the ribbon looks fine and not at all too feminine. The washi tape matches perfectly. Enjoy the week ahead, Sherry.

Sherry, Belated congrats on being an ODBD winner. Looks like you shopped well. Great card, by the way. Love the pairing of the orange and gray and the pairing of the tractor and the stripes.

Congrats on ODBD winner! Great guy card, so rugged. Love the pop of red, the checkered flag and the ribbon ties it all together. Nice job! Thanks for sharing and playing along with this week's sketch!

Sherry, I love what you did with the sketch! The ribbon is a great addition and does not take away from the masculinity of the card at all. Thanks for sharing!

Cute card. I choose the same stamp set when I was the ODB winner! Nice to see another way to use it.
