A Guy Thing

I've been thinking that I really need to make some menfolk type cards.  I never have one when I need one.  Then as I was going through the challenges I spotted the Sweet Stampin' challenge for "Clear as Mud" which is brown plus one other color and the Stamp with Fun Challenge for  "blue/brown" and the Allsort's challenge for a "male/boy" card.  I think I got the push I needed to make a he-man card and with it being Monday I looked up the Mojo challenge to get a sketch and then I was ready to go.  It didn't take long to pull the supplies and since there's not coloring, just a stamp and die cut, well it was done in no time.  I had plenty of time left to go feel the flamingos at Sarasota Jungle.
Here's the deets:
Stamp - My Favorite Things "Textile Rectangles" a very cool set of stamps with a matching die, makes things very easy peasy
ink - Stampin' Up "Soft Suede"
Paper - Stampin' Up "Soft Suede" cs; SU "Patterns Pack II" dp

don't forget the inside
 Miscellaneous - SU "Soft Suede" ribbon; SU twine; SU corner punch; charm; buttons; My Favorite Things rick rack die-namics

Here's the challenges:
Mojo Monday #175 - sketch
Crazy Challenge CCH#51 - dots and stripes
Stamp With Fun #95 - Blue and Brown
Sweet Stampin' - Clear as Mud (brown plus one color)
Allsorts week 87 - male/boy
