Happy Birthday

Good evening peeps,

I have my card for this week's Paper Player's Challenge. Jaydee is hostess with a Masculine Birthday Card  theme. I had lots of ideas and finally settled on this one because I wanted to use some of my new Concord & 9th goodies. Everything on this card, except the VersaMark ink, is C&9th supplies.

I picked a gold, gray, and blue palette for my colors, which is really what makes this a "masculine" card. If I'd used pastels or pinks and purples, it would have more a feminine feel.

The background stamp set is the Dots Turnabout stamp set and the birthday stamp and die set is called, appropriately, All The Birthdays. The square elements that I turned on point, the HB dies and the banner die are all dies that are part of the stamp set. For the large HB, I first stamped the C&9th Woven Plaid Background on white card stock, then cut the dies.


For the inside of the card I've used an older C&9th Turnabout and another sentiment stamp set from C&9th.

Thanks all for looking in,
