WWC46 - Silent Night

I love CAS challenges and when Jean Fitch chose to make her challenge for our Watercooler Wednesday challenge masculine as well, I was anxious to get started.

I decided to make mine a Christmas card.  It's not always easy to find something strictly masculine among the many Christmas cards on display, is it?  For my husband, for example, I usually try to have something of an outdoor theme on a card.  He is an avid fly fisherman and has hunted for most of his life.  His job, too, has taken him to many wilderness places that some people only dream of seeing.  With this in mind, I chose the elk image from The Wilderness Awaits stamp set.  To that I added the beautiful tall pines from the Wonderland stamp set as well as the sentiment from the same set.

I kept my card very simple (of course) and kept to an almost complete black and white palette.  I say "almost" because I did add a touch of colour to the elk, using my Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake Stampin' Markers.  While my husband may not understand the concept of "clean and simple", I know he'll love the card.

I hope you'll check out the other CAS cards created by our Watercooler Artists at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I've also entered my card into the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge since their's is, serendipitously, CAS this week.
