Happy Birthday - sketch

 Hello again, dear Friends!

I'm back with the second card I was able to make, and thought I'd share it now. The card will be given soon, but I've already missed the challenge, bummer!  I guess that'll teach me one of these days to wait til the last minute - ha!  This card used a couple of snippets out of my box, a win of sorts, right?!

I drug the two leaves, already stamped/embossed/colored/winked out of the box and thought they fit for a masculine card.  Now what?   Hmmm I found the sketch over at FMS480 and liked that I could change it up a bit but still work.

I used papers from HB Autumn Afternoon, which matched the leaves well.  What you can't see is the winking!  The left leaf actually is winked in gold and the right leaf winked in clear sparkle -- it works well with the golden honeycomb bg paper.  To match, I used another paper from the same pack, although my lighting REALLY changed the color from a deeper green to what you see - almost a marine blue -- oh well!  I used a couple of matching snippets to pop up the sentiment over the leaves.

   E by E - Succulent Sentiment (believe it or not!  love this font...

Have a blessed day!


  1. I love this design, so geometric and the colours you used are perfect. This could be used for a guy or gal. The green is what pops at you and when you look in more detail there is so much to catch your eye-love it x

  2. Love the layers and textures.

  3. Great way to use those snippet, TK, this is terrific!

  4. A very stylish masculine card, love the design and colour choice x

  5. I recognized that Sketch immediately, TK - maybe a little alarm on your phone would help?
    Definitely would work well for a guy - and I love seeing those sweet little SSS trees again!

  6. That is a fantastic layout on your card and I love all the colors. Great use of snippets. Sorry you missed the deadline. I fully understand that as I have often been in the same situation!

  7. Clever take on the sketch, TK! Definitely works for a guy.

  8. What a striking design and love the colour combination and those 'winked' leaves look fabulous TK x.

  9. Beautiful leaves, TK! What a wonderful sketch! Love how you've used the papers and the font of that sentiment is awesome!

  10. Love the design, TK. I knew it was FMS right away and I'm sorry you missed the deadline. The colors really bring your masculine card to life.

  11. Cool and wonderfully graphic, TK ... deliciously masculine! Hugs, Anita :)
