Cricut Cardz Challenge #65

Good Morning Fellow Bloggers!
I decided to get back in the swing of things and participate in a challenge I came across yesterday on Cricut Cardz Challenge. It started since last week and it ends tonight at midnight. The challenge is to make a 9" X 4" card - aka a tall card - using any cartridge and color scheme you prefer. I chose to do a masculine card since my brother's birthday is coming up. This card also qualifies for Sugar Sweet Paper Treats March challenge so I will enter it there as well. The challenge is to use a cut you've never used before.

I used Dude! Cricut Lite cartridge and cut the skater at 3" and the ramp at 3.25". I recently got this cartridge so this is my second time using it. I used purple (I want to say Perfect Plum but I am not sure) cardstock from Stampin Up because I wanted it to look like he was skating at dusk. I hand cut a mountainous backdrop using kraft cardstock and colored the top with brown chalk for texture. I used a Scrappy Mom's sentiment from their stamp set called Designer's Choice, "Kick up you Heels." I treated myself to four of their stamp sets recently and I love them. I admire other stamp sets as well and plan to purchase but Scrappy Mom's stamps fits my card style so I started with them. I wish the picture came out better. I took three photos and this is the best of the three. I didn't do anything extra. I thought about using black diamond stickles on the Skate in the ramp just because I love stickles but I didn't do it. I still might before I give it to him.
So that's my card. I hope you like. Thank you for visiting and commenting if you do. Have a great day!
