Let's Celebrate!

Monday, November 4, 2013

Happy Monday! I needed a masculine birthday card this week, so I pulled out one of Tim Holtz's Birthday Blueprint stamps and whipped this card up in no time!
I think this card is self-explanatory, so I won't add unnecessary details. If you have any questions about something on the card, just shoot me an email. :)
Inside the card, I attempted to created a shadow on the sentiment. It worked, but maybe too good. The sentiment seems to be hovering over the cs, which makes my eyes a little crazy. But, it's still a cool technique.

Gotta run...I'm going to meet a friend for breakfast, and some stampers for lunch. This will be a good day!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a good day, too! :)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
Color Me Creative Challenge #80: Dudes, Guys, Masculine (DUDES13)
Catch the Bug Challenge: November-Anything Goes
Corrosive Challenge #186: Tic-Tac-Toe (I used patterned paper, a stamped image, & a sentiment)
Challenges 4 Everybody #32: Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create Challenge #44: Anything Goes/No Optional Twist

Wonderful masculine card! I like that you filled the label with the sentiment!
Yeah, the inside sentiment looks a little 3D!!

Beautiful card, Cheryl! Masculine cards can be such a challenge at times. This one is truly wonderful! I love the colors you have chosen. And the inside of your card is wonderful too! Nicely done!

This is, indeed, a very masculine card and at the same time it's very stylish. Well done! I love the "hovering" sentiment inside. I keep forgetting how cool that technique is. It looks great. Makes you want to touch it to see if it's dimensional.

That sounds like an amazing day :)
LOVE the glitter on the bow, and the fun shadow on the inside - it would make my eyes crazy too, lol.
