Masculine Birthday

Hi Everyone,

I was inspired by the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #129.  I thought this sketch would make a great birthday card.

I have a few little details to tell you about.  I embossed my back layer with "Dots" embossing folder and then distressing it to bring out the white core of the paper.  

Then I added clear embossing powder to the small stars.   As you can see in the photo, it brings out the design of the paper and creates a nice shiny embellishment.  The main colors here are,  CTMH Exclusive Card Stock Outdoor Denim and Ruby.  The patterned paper is from the Paper Pack, ProPlayer, which is now retired.

The sentiment is from "Joyful Birthday" stamp set #B1419, this was stamped in Outdoor Denim and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

This will be my last challenge entry for a couple of weeks, I have to get to work on my holiday projects.  Lots of presents and cards to make.

I will be sure to show you some of the great projects as I get them finished.

Be sure to check out the October promotions and make your holiday purchases at

Till next time

Happy Craftin!
