Masculine Verve Birthday Card
This is the final Verve sketch for September. This month always flies by being the first month of school with all the activities ramping up again. The school year schedule has been set and here we go!!
I decided to go with a masculine theme for this card when I found this striped paper. Matched it up with more yummy fall colours and then hand doodled the stitching around the sentiment panel.
The top right hand corner was just too plain for my linking (even for a masculine card) and since I couldn't make up my mind on what I wanted to use in the corner, I armed myself with my various options and took them downstairs for a family vote. The consensus was the leaves with the button. Took their vote and ran with it. Anyone else recruit their family for decisions on cards?! They are a great cure for indecisiveness LOL!
