Seize the Birthday #6

Here's my card for the Seize the Birthday #6 sketch challenge to make a masculine birthday card following the sketch. I love the colors of this new paper pad I found at my LSS called Blissful Blizzard by Fancy Pants. The two papers I chose are masculine and did most of the work for me. I used a Sizzix die for the stars, using kraft, vanilla and a piece of dark teal, along with a paper crimper for the largest star. I held them all together with a tiny star brad in the center, and wrapped some neutral twine around the middle. The sentiment is by SU! teeny tiny wishes, and I hand-cut the banner I stamped it on. And now I have another masculine birthday card added to my stash :) I love this challenge :)



Have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
