Compass Rose Birthday

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

Hi Friends! This will be super quick--I'm down to the wire on the Play Date Cafe Challenge!

I made this masculine birthday card using the Viva la Verve March 2013 Week 1 sketch, the Play Date Cafe #171 color palette, and I used corrugated cardboard for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #210 Cards with Cardboard Challenge. My card recipe is at the bottom of the post.

Here's the inside.

Three challenges and such a wonderful job bringing it all together. Your card is divinely masculine. Love how you distressed the cardboard, and that glitter ring is pretty interesting, too. Great details to study. I really love this.
