I love making cards for my one nephew. He is a hunter and a real outdoorsman. I found this bear stamp for him. I used the stamp on a piece of paper and then dry embossed the copper. I punched the copper out with my Giga circle punch and worked the image and worked the image and worked the image again. When I got the metal where I wanted it I used my new little butane torch to heat the copper to add color. I had this idea of putting mountains on the green triangle with brown craft ink -- not such a good Idea -- so I used clear EP to emboss and it made a great background. I used two BG stamps and the word wish to complete the stamping. Hardware hodge podge and jute to finish it off. It started out being for a sketch challenge a couple of weeks ago until I realized the triangle was suppose to be on top of the circle. You win some and you lose some!

I think you won! I think your card is lovely! I like the copper, and jute for a masculine feel and the lighter is great for making multiple colors on the copper. l also like the way you tied the knot with the jute.
