Taylored Mad...

for plaid that is! I used the fabby Challenge sketch 113 over at Taylored Expressions to make my card today and I used the Mad for plaid challenge that Whimsie Doodles has issued over at Paper Craft Planet! This is also my second entry for thre Your Next Sstamp Challenge 16 to pop it up, cut it out. And last, but certainly now least, Treehouse stamps has a challenge to make a manly card...I think this fits the bill!

This is actually a large card...it measures 5.5 inches square, but I love it and it pretty much rocks! I added crystal effects to the legs and some of the arm rolls to add dimention and the appearance of luxury to the card. The ribbon treatment was for the fringe challenge over at the Spotted Canary Foru,...I simple added adhesive to the back of some chocolate twill tape and the cut small pieces of the same ribbon and adhered them to the long piece...I think it looks pretty cool!

I guess I should of added some sort of something where the gussetted buttons are, but I just realized I didn't just now looking at it...ohh well, such is life! LOL

For the floor I simply sponged it with a brown craft pad and then used a fine line pen and drew the lines with a straight edge. For the wall I sponged with a gable green craft pad and sponge and then added the wallpaper dots...I think it looks pretty cool!
