OSAAT #117 - For the Man in Your Life

You don't need money, don't take fame;
Don't need no credit card to ride this train;
It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes;
But it might just save your life...
That's the power of love.
Huey Lewis & the News

This week's challenge theme at One Stitch at a Time is For the Man in Your Life, so I used Power of Love by Stitchy Stamps to make this simple card for my husband...I've been working on it in secret so that I can give it to him right before I post this; Talk about taking the challenge theme literally!

The Chevrons are actually Digi Papers from Mel Stampz, printed on flat white Hammermill cardstock; the rest are DPs from my stash. I colored the image with my Copics; I do love purple!

I liked the clean lines on this, so I didn't include an actual sentiment. Plus, doesn't the image really say it all‽

Hope you'll join the For the Man in Your Life challenge at One Stitch at a Time this week.
