Comfort & Joy

 Creating masculine cards can be a challenge, don't you think?  And to make a masculine Christmas card can really be a stretch for me.  That being said, I was so glad to get this stamp set from Lil Inker Designs because I thought it was perfect for a quick, easy "man card"! I gold embossed the image, then watercolored - voila!

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration (and for giving me a reason to break out this set!)
