Masculine Monday #7

It's Monday and that means it's time for another masculine card.
I really struggled this week - I don't know if it's because I had a rough
week and had zero energy this weekend or I'm just running out of ideas 
for masculine cards. I hope it was the first one.

I used the Journaling Alpha Dies from Neat & Tangled -  love those things!
I chose 5 different colors of cardstock to cut the letters and layered them 
onto some DSP. 
I hummed and hawed for quite a while about whether or 
not to do anything else to the card. I couldn't decide so I decided to get 
an expert's opinion - I asked a man - and he thought it looked pretty 
good so I left it alone.

I kept things basically clean and simple - the gluing of the letters took
about 15 minutes but it was actually enjoyable.

I'm playing along with the following challenges:
Less is More - Alphabet
Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies
Addicted to Stamps and More - clean and simple

Happy Stampin'
