Paper Therapy-November 22 2010

Hello all!! Welcome to our  eighth challenge at  Paper Therapy.  Paper Therapy is an online forum for scrapbookers and card makers to share their work, meet new friends, learn new tips and techniques and have fun!! I hope you can join us every week in our challenges! The previous seven have been SUPER fun and were seeing some really incredible designs!

  Here's how it works. Every monday a new challenge will be posted in the forum. You upload your design   and have the chance to win the weekly challenge. A fabulous prize and winner blinkie will be awarded the first challenge winner of every month, and then subsequent challenge winners will win an awesome blinkie to share with the whole world, showing them that you rocked the  Paper Therapy challenge.

  This week's challenge is to create to a card for a man, which is sometimes a challenge for me as most of my papers, stamps and embellishments are 'girl-oriented.'

I used Basic Grey ledger paper, and stamped a car from October Afternoon.

I stitched the sides of the paper that the car is on and border punched the
edge so it resembled a notebook page
I stamped a ledge on the card and heat embossed it with silver 
embossing powder.

The "b free" sentiment could be perfect for a young man's birthday or college graduation!

Now is your turn! Make sure to post your card or layout to the message board by midnight on Saturday, November 27th. I hope that you play along with us this week at  Paper Therapy
