Boss' Day

I don't have a boss, I am the boss, *smiles* well, at least of my household during the day! But, M does have a boss, and so I made it a quest to create a masculine card for him to give his boss. It was not an easy task for me, but here is what I came up with. I really hope his boss likes it.

I used SU's "Set Sail" because I don't have any masculine sets that are current. Good info for me though for Fathers Day -- clearly I will need one. The colors are creamy caramel, ruby red, and not quite navy. The neutral paper is confetti cream. The ribbon is American Crafts Elements ribbon. The bottom has some linen thread double tied. The sentiment is from SU "Much Appreciated." Oh, and I paper pierced the edge of the caramel layer for interest. I think it turned out pretty good for a masculine card. Happy Boss' Day. Don't forget to thank your boss for a job well done.

Oh, and in other news, Mr Brown (aka UPS) will be coming today to drop off a bunch of paper, some stamps and oval punches. YAY! I am pretty excited because I need to cut and prepare for Super Saturday which is only a few days away . . . YIPES!
