Surf's Up Dude!

The back of my card with envelope:
What up dude!?! My card today was based on Mercy's Tuesday Sketch pictured below!

My FREE Just Surfing Set (120220 - SAB) arrived last week so I wanted to use it to make a masculine card for the Stampin' Royalty challenge! Right after I finished making this card, a couple of my sweet friends invited me over to watch to movie 'Blue Crush' (a surfing movie) so it was a totally themed evening! Hehe!!! I've never been surfing, but maybe I should learn sometime! ;)
I also entered this card in the Cupcake Craft Challenge to keep it simple and Kris' Kween Bee Challenge of Monochromatic colors!

Stampin' Essentials Tips:

  • My Polka Dot embossed background was made with the SU Perfet Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder on page 35 of the Occasions Mini Catalog! I ran this through my Big Shot with Bordering Blue card stock! I love Night of Navy paired with Bordering Blue for a Monochromatic look! Both colors are from the SU Rich Regals color family!
