I have been been a little bit of a slacker with my challenges I like to play around with this week. I am getting ready for an all day crop at my house on Saturday and I've been making special treats! I did find a few minutes to play around with the sketch over at Cas(e) This Sketch! There was no beating around the bush with this sketch. I knew right away what I wanted to do. Don't you love it when that happens?!
This is just the perfect masculine card ever! Bold guy colors and lots of grunge. I did use some ribbon for the banner ends, but instead of a bow (which is totally girlie) I just tied a knot. For my stamp layers, I used Off the Grid and Gorgeous Grudge in colors of island indigo, soft sky and pumpkin pie.
And of course we can't forget the inside. Kept simple, but I carried the same stamp layers to the inside. Now all it needs is that hand written birthday message!
Cardstock ~ very vanilla, early espresso, pumpkin pie, island indigo
Ink ~ early espresso, soft sky, pumpkin pie, island indigo
Stamp Sets ~ Off the Grid and Gorgeous Grunge
Misc. ~ early espresso taf. ribbon, banner punch, candy dots, MDS software where I typed and printed my birthday front sentiment
I hope you have enjoyed my wicked birthday card! Don't forget to leave some "love", I always appreciate and enjoy reading them!
