Loving my little reject....

Howdy!  Happy Friday to all!  I am guessing everyone is following the *intense* completition for the Gallery Idol over at Paper Crafts Connection?!?  If not, you should be!  :)  They are down to the top 5 and some of my very fave creators (Virginia, Melania and Jocelyn- nothing against the other ladies either, I just don't know their stuff as well) are still in the running!  These ladies and there creations are ALL amazing, and I am talking about the top 5, but also about the top 20.  Every creation is so wonderful and it makes it so hard to choose each week!  I wish the best to all of them!

Today I want to share a card I had made for the last Paper Crafts Magazine submission call which focused on cards for guys.  I entered this in the funny/goofy round (it was something like that).  Sadly, it didn't make it, but I still love my little reject and had so much fun creating it.  The majority of the images are Darcies stamps, but the sentiment and speach bubble are from Paper Smooches and Lawn Fawn respectivley.  The DP and twine is also Lawn Fawn and I used Thickers from American Crafts.  My fave part of this card are the tied up twigs that I gathered from the yard and how they play off of the sentiment & belated birthday wishes, it just makes me giggle!  Sooooo...this is actually perfect for the new CAS-ual Friday's Challenge #106- Over the Edge. 

UPDATE- I am entering this in the "Let's Get Trendy Now" challenge for making your own embelishments. :)
Enjoy your weekend!
