One for the Guys


While making this card earlier this week, I had some leftover components that I decided to use for this masculine birthday card. I used the sketch for Seize the Birthday #8, along with the CASology #33 challenge to use circles.

There's plenty of white space, although it's been darkened a bit with some grey chalk to look like tire tracks because guys seem to appreciate a little bit of dirt on their cards. It's more in tune to their lifestyle I think :) Anyway, I know just the person to be the recipient for this card, as he's a car enthusiast and loves having a garage full of tools.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! I might be back later today with something else, so stay tuned :)
