PCD Release day!

Today is release day at Practicing Creativity Designs! Have you seen all the samples that the DT and guest designers have showcased? All of a sudden it's fun to create guy cards...and no longer a chore!
I wanted to show you another card using You're the Man that is very different from my other two. Simple, but still very guy-ish, right? 
I love this sentiment because it reminds me of those silly beer commercials from the 90s...something like "I love you man, but you're not getting my Bud light!" Remember that? lol

I decided that sometimes it is ok to use brighter colors on a guy card if you balance it with neutrals. Here, the bright greens, blue, and rusty color are offset with the kraft, cream twine and tarnished eyelets.

Here are the details:
You're the Man
Price: $12.99
Shipping and Handling: Flat Rate $4 for continental US; Flat Rate $6 International
Stamps are made in the US from high-quality photopolymer.

If you do decide to get You're The Man and make something with it, let me know because your card or project can be added to the gallery in the actual store for everyone to see!

Oh, and don't forget to submit your card or LO using sketch #9 to Sasya Sketches for a chance at an awesome prize! 
Look at the gorgeous vintage trims, jewels, lace and ribbon package that the winner will receive. Yum.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope your day is fabulous!

Dana, this is a great card and that "You're the Man" set is OH so tempting! :) Love the big "bro", "dad", etc. :) Question for you (I know I always pester you with questions!) - Is the $4 flat rate PER stamp set or for the entire order? Thanks much! :)
