Cool Oakely

Ok, so you all know that I am not good at manly cards. But I think I like this one myself! =)

This stamp is Cool Oakely illustrated by Elisabeth Bell available at Whiff of Joy Stamps. I paired him with patterned papers from BasicGrey's Origins. I also used sketch #88 from Friday Sketchers for this card.

It took me a while to decide which sentiment to put on the cards. In the end, I think this stamp from Papertry Ink's Autumn Abundance set is perfect. What do you think?

That's all I have for today. Hope you have a lovely Wednesday! =)


Thanks for stopping by!
