The Artful Stampers Blog Hop # 19

Welcome from Annette's blog this week.

We have a colour challenge again.
I decided to do another masculine thank you card this week as I thought this colour scheme went really well. The You Brighten My Day stamp set is from our Sale-A-Bration catalogue and can be chosen for free with any purchase of Stampin' Up! products to the value of only $90. 
The first card I made was a copy of the card that Brian King from Stampin' with Brian made last week. I really loved the simplicity of it (I did change a couple of small details though).
CASE'd from Brian King
I then decided to try and come up with my own interpretation of this card, so flipped it on its side and did some embossing as well.
