After my play fest with the dress forms I had to get down to the business of making my son’s birthday card. I entered a card in a Squigglefly challenge… gosh… around Christmastime (has it really been that long ago?), and I won a free image. This one was on my wish list because, well, you know how I feel about dogs, and I thought it would be great for guy birthday cards. So I saved it for my son, and here it is, Another Birthday.
I appreciate how well illustrated this digi stamp is. Whether an image is intricate and elegant, or simple and whimsical, if it’s got beauty and/or character I’ll probably like it. Which is why, I suppose, I can’t stick to any one style. I guess Life really is like a box of chocolates.
I printed on Flourishes Classic White cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The candles are glittered with Stickles and the circle frame is popped up on foam mounting tape. The layout is pretty straightforward and the only embellishment the three brads attaching the sentiment flag. It almost seems rather under-embellished after last week’s cards, but, you know, it’s a guy card. Colorful, though.
I’m so happy you could drop by today and I hope to see you again later this week. Take care!
