How Girly are YOU?

Hello to all...

I found this challenge very interesting and was so on it!... I didn't have the time last week, so today I quickly took some time for it...

It's from Ippity by Unity Stamp Co... and the challenge was to create something using NOTHING girly.. no pink or purple colors, no flowers, no bling, no girly girly...

I thought it was going to be kind of "easy", but then I realized how much girly stuff we like to use on our projects.

I decided to make a card and I found me thinking of adding flowers, glossy accents, bling, ribbon, this and that...   And suddenly all the sentiments were for women and did not apply for men...hehehehehe!!!

Well, I chose this stamp with a message about friendship.  Since friendship does not have genre... you know...

 I stamped the sentiment on a sticker and then the sticker was placed on chipboard and cut so I could give it a little dimension with 3D squares.

THen I thought.. "this is not just a sentiment"... it's a life lesson for everyone!

So I decided to use a second stamp which is the "No.8" you see in the photo.  I rubbed on the word "lesson" and combined with the #8 to read "lesson No. 8".

I carefully chose papers with brown, green, yellow, orange and blue colors.   I also distressed and inked edges with brown ink.

I think I did it... No Girly at all... but cool message.  Do you like it?

Don't forget to leave your message and visit the other girls (or boys?) too! You can do that HERE.
