I took two challenges - color challenge and a layout and made 2 different cards with some of the same elements. The color challenge is from Splitcoast from last week - more mustard, old olive and midnight must (I also used very vanilla).
The layout is from Retrosketches. I made one vertical and one horizontal.
I made this one to be a male birthday card. I used chevron embossing and a glimmer brad. See how I cut the framelit shape (green) to be only behind the top half.
