WWC200 - Helen's All About Occasions Challenge
Wow! This week we reach our 200th challenge with Helen hosting an All About Occasions Challenge. Seems like only yesterday this challenge was born from a  group of Stampin' Up demonstrators chatting in a forum.

The occasion I've picked is that of a male-themed birthday  card.
Crumb Cake is one of my favourite neutral colours and I love stamping on it with a strong colour. I went with Blueberry Bushel for the truck image from Countryside, a retired stamp set.

The band across the middle is Very Vanilla, stamped with the Buffalo Check background stamp and Blueberry Bushel, which I also used for the sentiment from Window Shopping, also a retired set.

Using the Tag Topper punch to punch out the sentiment, and a bit of Thick Black Baker's Twine, gives just enough detail to finish off this card.

Now visit Watercooler Wednesday for more great ideas for your occasions creations. 


  1. Love this very masculine card! The blue ink and gingham work great together!

  2. What a great choice, Gail, to combine the Crumb Cake and Blueberry Bushel. The blue is just deep enough to show up well against the background and yet is light enough to show off its vivid tones. The truck image is one of those classic retired ones that never grows old. I love how you've used it for this card.
