Masculine Birthday

Verve Masculine photo VLVMayWk3picA.jpg


Catching up on all the Verve sketches I have missed due to the craziness of the past month, and this sketch was perfect for a birthday card I need to make for my brother.   Since it is a masculine card, this month's Diva Dare challenge of Stars and Stripes was perfect as well - double score :)

I love this Birthday To You Plain Jane as it makes such a wonderfully bold statement and fits perfectly into a few of the Banner Bundle dies.  Ii used the two largest for this card and added some brads down the side in keeping with the masculine theme -- plus I still have tons and would like to use them up LOL!

Some twine and a big star balance things out nicely and though you can't see it very well, the white background panel is embossed with the Seeing Spots embossing folder for some added texture.  Best part:  my brother loved it :)

Thanks for popping by today.  Another short week for us here which means packing five days into four and as long as I remember which day I'm on I'll be good LOL!
