Happy Birthday!

I needed a birthday card for one of my sons. These are his college colors even though he received his degree several years ago I still like to use them for his special day. Happy Birthday David.

This card was made using the sketch challenge at TCM's birthday celebration. I used one of their free images for the sentiment and 2 other images from Lisa's great stamps! Be sure to check it out! 

I only used the 2 main colors and popped up the circle in the sun image. I find that making masculine cards is more of a challenge and having 6 sons I am always challenged! 






Recipe: 
Stamps: TCM
Paper: SU - Bravo Burgundy and Marigold
Designer Paper: BG - Oliver
Other: Spellbinder die, ribbon, Cuttlebug folder, 2 heart gems

Challenges: 
Creative Mondays - 2W - (2nd week) Anything Goes
Love to Create - 3E Masculine (plus Sketch* optional)
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
Paper Playtime - 2W,(2nd week) For the Guys and add a Sentiment
