Flashback Friday Challenge #24 ~

Hey there!  Hope you all are doing great!  I was selected on the last Flashback Friday challenge to be a Guest Designer for the new challenge!  How fun is that?  Flashback Friday Challenge #24 is your first masculine card.  The challenge runs May 25 - June 15, midnight Pacific daylight time.  Our sponsor is the one and only Perfect Presentation!
The winner will get to choose 3 templates in any format they'd like!  Super cool!
  I had a hard time choosing which one was my first man card.  This is the first I did with the intention of sending to a man, my dad.  The other two cards were little boy pirate cards.  Do those count?  Yes, but this is a bit more masculine and less kiddy.  ;o)
My second brayering attempt - not too bad and not too great.  Come to think of it, I never tried again after this!  lol
Ok, time for you to hop on to the rest of the crew!  Here's the list: 
Alyssa {that's me!}

Don't forget about my giveaway post below!  There's still time to comment!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have fun on the hop!  :o) lyss

Oh, I like this! I think your brayering looks pretty good. I'm not a brayer-er either, I've gotta say...but mine is always streaky since I don't practice. I just want to be good at it already :)

This is gorgeous and definately masculine (mine is the little boy version I'm afraid!) If thisi s only your second attempt at brayering, then I'd pick the tool up again cos you rocked the technique!!!

I like the simplicity of this design - great colour for a guy card!

Even your old cards look good. You make me sick. LOL I don't recall if I've ever brayered anything--you did a great job with it!

One more tool that I too own and never use. I think I got glue or something all over it and couldn't get it clean ;>)
Classy card though!!!
Hey...you have that stinky word verification - don't you know it takes me about 3 tries to get it right???!!! LOL - I don't remember you having it...now that I have complained it is going to take me about 4 tries to get it right!

I think your brayering is lovely! The bamboo image is perfect for this technique. Your piercing is perfection.
