Today I have for you a couple of cards I made using this paper pack.

Up first is this masculine birthday card (for my younger brother). An quick an easy make. For the sentiment panel, I simply stamped the sentiment (from Birthday Sparkles) in black ink and then added a splash of colour with my Shinhan Touch Twin Marker in a coordinating colour.

And next I have a get well card using one of the mini stamps from CTMH.

And yes - that flower is NOT from the Dreamin' Big collection. It's actually from the retired Skylark line but I thought it coordinated so well with these papers that I just had to use it on the card. See - you CAN combine different collections!

And now off you go to the next stop on the hop with Lucy Imrie at "Lucy's Creative Expressions"

As always - thanks for stopping by!

I really like your cards Sheena! Isn't it a lot of fun mixing embellies from other kits...Who says they always have to come from the same kit in order to look right? I love it when I see mixing kits!

Nice cards. I like the use of the paper for a masculine card. People often struggle to find masculine looks with CTMH papers.

Great cards. I love that you made a "masculine" card. I know people are always struggling to find masculine looks with the CTMH papers - they just need to rethink things.
