August Blog Hop

 I must be perfectlly honest. I really wasn't thrilled with this month's PTI Blog Hop challenge which is all about autumn patterns, textures & textiles. Below is this month's inspiration.

Blog-hop-1 
   However, since I have two masculine birthdays in September, I decided to create a CAS card using my new Herringbone Impression Plate and felt.  I used the Happy die from Pretty Peonies with black felt.




A close up shot of the inside sentiment.


Thanks for hopping by.

Carol, these are perfect for a masculine birthday! They are my least favorite cards to create, so it's always good to have some on hand : )

What a fun card. Great idea to die cut the felt (wink!)

Looks like you turned lemons into lemonade! This turned out great- and I wouldn't have thought of that die for a masculine card- but it works great! Thanks for the inspiration! :)
