Stampin' Up! Totally Tool and I create a Masculine Card

Sorry for the lack of posts these last few days, I've been feeling a tad mojo-less.... It's the start of another weekend off for me, so I decided to start it on a good note and avoid the royal wedding, by sitting down to a movie Mark hired... It was called Tokyo Gore Police, most completely random movie ever! I wouldn't suggest watching it if you're at all squeamish, although none of the 'blood' looks realistic, it is still a bit gross in sections... It was just one of those movies where I went "what on earth??" for most of it... After the movie finished, Mark went to bed (he was up at 3am this morning), and I went to craft....
For my card, I have used Basic Grey, Whisper White, More Mustard, Real Red and Sahara Sand. The stamp set I have used is one I don't utilise very often, Totally Tool, it is a great set for the men in your life, and I love the sentiment, which I have used. The sentiment is usually in one long line, I highlighted the parts individually using my Stampin' Write Markers mine so it would fit in the Modern Label Punch that I wanted to use.  This card was a bit of a struggle for me, if I'm completely honest... I find when I try to combine a colour challenge with a sketch challenge, I really have a hard time of it.... I used the colour inspiration and the cute circles from the Moxie Fab World, Tuesday Trigger
I paired this with the Inkspirations Sketch challenge, which I found was quite similar to a sketch I used the other day, here
Anyway, it's bed time for me...
Sorry about the rambling above... hehe...
Until next time, Happy Stamping!

Love your card! I find masculine cards difficult, so I might be coming back to "steal" your idea for a Father's Day card. Do you mind?
