Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #10: Birthday Sketch

Hello Everyone,

Its Design Team 2 week at Celebrate the Occasion, that means its my turn to submit a project. This week's challenge is to make something Birthday, but you have to follow a sketch. Remember that there is a monthly prize for entering our challenges This month's  prize is 'Simply Sweet' Cricut Cart. You have until Sunday, April 24th, 11:59pm (EST).

I really wanted to challenge myself by making a masculine card. I find them so difficult to make sometimes, this was the perfect opportunity to try. When creating masculine cards choose a couple coordinating 'guy' patterned paper, limit the embellishments (plain buttons and plain grosgrain ribbons are great for guy cards) and you can also play up the word art. I love the way my card looks and I can all use this design for so many other occasions by just changing the greeting and word art.

What was used:
We Are Memory Keepers Geo-Hectic Stack.
Recollections Cardstock (5 1/2 X 5 1/2 base)
Colorbox Charcoal ink
Ribbon from my stash
Making Memories Rub-Ons
Heidi Grace Cardstock Alphas Stickers
Fiskars Shape Cutter

Please visit  Celebrate the Occasion get inspired by the DT projects, see the sketch and join in the fun. You don't even have to own a Cricut to join in, I didn't use mine for this project.

Happy Scrapping
