Viva La Verve October Week 3 Sketch

VLV Oct 2015 Wk 3 photo VLVOctWk3pic.jpg

Loved this fabulous sketch by Stacey and the timing was perfect as I needed to make a masculine birthday card.

Combined some yummy Basic Grey paper with Echo Park's polka dots and some neutrals.  The kraft panel is crimped for some "manly" texture lol, and the sentiment is the Birthday to You Plain Jane.  The Pennant Trim die provided the four banners, and I added some brads (remember those!) for a bit of hardware.  Couldn't resist using a maple leaf as it is great masculine accent and I have been a bit negligent in using them this fall.

You can check out the Viva La Verve blog for more inspiration as well as this week's gallery spotlights.

Have a fabulous day and thank for sharing a bit of yours with me today :)
