One big, bold shirt!

I made this card for Carter and Courtney to give to their Daddy on Sunday. I played along with Sharon's stamp simply challenge to "go bold" (ssnotime39). I cheated a little because this blue & red combo is one I love and have more or less used before - but the shirt being so big, red and plaid was fairly bold for me! (and btw - Joel would never leave the house wearing something like this, LOL -but he did like the card) I also used some "different" blues - the lightest blue is SU Bashful Blue textured paper, but the other two blues are from a Bazzill pack I've had for a while. The shirt and tie are from the Flourishes Menswear set. I like this card, but I don't love it - it's one I created with the missing mojo Saturday night. *sigh* I haven't stamped since, I'm a little afraid it will still be MIA... wish me luck!! Thanks for stopping by today.
(ETA: I am obviously NOT a fashionista - I was informed this is not PLAID but instead ARGYLE!! Oops...)
  • Stamps: Menswear from Flourishes
  • Paper: SU Prints DP, SU Bashful Blue textured cardstock, Bazzill cardstock
  • Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
  • Accessories: SU Real Red brads, 1" circle punch


  1. I think it is really cute! But it is true that I can't imagine Joel wearing a shirt like that, or pairing it with such a bright tie!
    I hope your mojo returns soon!

  2. Very cool! I love these shirt stamps. I love your work. TFS! XO, Mimi

  3. Great Father's Day card!! I happen to love the colors too, so I don't blame you for using this combo again. (I do that too. ;)

  4. Awesome Libby!

    Many Blessings,

  5. Great shirt - and very bold!! :)

  6. Plaid or argyle - it's terrific. I love this stamp. If I didn't already have so many un-inked SU sets, I'd be all over that set. (My cards should luck so good with maximum mojo - but, still, hope you get it back soon.)

    Good Job!

    Hugs, Sonia (Sony)

  9. LOVE your bold shirt and tie! It's a perfect Father's Day card.

  10. The paper sure is perfect for the shirt and so is the layout! It looks fun on a card even if Joel wouldn't dream of wearing it. I'd have to wonder about the guy who would... Anyway, it's a great card! I'll be back later, Libby. I'm out watering the garden and just stopped for a minute. It looks like you've got some cute stuff (including Courtney) to see!


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
