Just Add Ink Challenge #28 - Just Add a Man Card plus a Colour Combo

Hi Friends,
Todays post is for this weeks challenge at Just Add Ink.  The theme is a Man Card with an added bonus of a Colour Challenge. I paper pieced the shirt and tie with the Parision Breese DSP, embossed the chocolate chip card and stamped the Baja Breeze background with the Polka Dot BG and Sanded BG stamps. I sponged the edges of the Baja Breeze, added the sentiment and buttons.. Love these colours together, nice challenge from the designer team.
Stamps: Flourishes Mens Wear Stamp Set #21, S/U's Polka Dot BG, Sanded BG
Card and Paper: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Parisian Breeze DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
Embellishments: Buttons
Tools: Wide Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Embroidery Cotton, Big Shot, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Sponge, Needle
Thanks for stopping by today.
