Last Birthday Card


Here is the last of the cards we did at my recent class. Again, I attempted to do a more manly card, but I could not resist throwing in the little flower. This card was inspired by this card done by WAXYO. Is there a limit to how many times you can CASE someone? If you have not taken a peek in her gallery over at SCS, it is a must see.
Several of the ladies at the class liked this card because it was "Gator Colors". I absolutely love these colors together. I also added some hemp twine to try to make it a little more masculine. I wanted to add all the brads that Meg has on hers, but since I had 10 people making two each...so alas, I did not have enough brads. So we settled for 1 rather than 5. I used the Rock n Roll technique on this card, and sponged everything to add a little depth and aged look. It really makes the "U" pop, I think. Overall I am fairly happy with it.

Masculine cards are so difficult for me!! I need to design a few that doesn't revolve around sports.
