Feeling Sentimental - Masculine

Good morning Peeps! 

It's a lovely sunny day here in the frozen north!  For once got a decent photo of my card. 

I've followed two challenges today -
CASe this sketch - sketch below
Addicted to CAS - codeword Masculine

Here's how I made the card.

I started with a Pumpkin Pie base.  Then embossed my panel of Early Espresso with the Chevron Folder.  I cut a rectangle of Very Vanilla and decided the telephone box from Feeling Sentimental (Sale-A-Bration 2013) was the perfect shape.  I followed my trusty Colour Coach and stamped it in Daffodil Delight.  With artistic license we can have our telephone boxes in any colour, right? Then I corner rounded the top two corners to mimic the box.  I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Pumpkin Pie.  To give an added warm glow I sponged some Pumpkin Pie around the edges.  Then popped the panel up on some Dimensionals.

I think this looks suitably masculine but i hope it's CAS enough.

Have a lovely day folks and I hope it's sunny where you are too! x
