I found this card on SCS some time ago and thought it a great layout for a masculine card. So with it I did this
and then pimped it slightly again and did this....
Whether I changed the colour palate or added a sentiment...each was a smidge different. Then...at 3AM a week or so back (cause yeah...that's when ur brain is turning to crafty ideas....) I had the idea for a colour combo of River Rock and Chocolate Chip. From that early morning epiphany...came this incarnation of the same idea....
Based on the same premise of the birthday card I did for my Dad a couple of posts back (here) I used the SU Weathered BGS to do the base, then stamped the "flourish" over the top. I was sooooooooo happy with the look. I then decided to add a sentiment. I used the FAB Amy R "Birthday Sentiments" set and the SU word window punch. I also used a narrower ribbon. I am still amazed at how different this card looks compared to its original predecessor.
