Seize the Birthday!


Back for a second post today so that I can get my card in before the deadline at Noon tomorrow at Seize the Birthday where it is sketch #2 which means this week we are creating a masculine birthday card using the same sketch as last week.  


In my earlier post last week I told you about this wonderful new challenge blog geared to getting us creating birthday cards for this coming year. They will use the same sketch two weeks in a row with the twist that for one card you will go feminine and for the next masculine.

My card was so easy as I let these gorgeous papers do all of the work. I bought these Farmhouse Paper Company "Fair Skies" papers and some embellishments last year and have used them a couple of times. Do you ever get those papers and love them so much you sometimes hate to use them.
This is the way I feel about these but I must share so some lucky guy will get this card using them.

My hot air balloon is made from a 3-D cut file at Silhouette. My Cameo is my new second love!

I distressed the edges and sponged vintage photo on my papers.


Now, if this is the first time seeing this challenge hurry on over and check it out as I know you will love working with their wonderful sketches. I know that I am looking forward to the months ahead creating more birthday cards.

Thanks for stopping by again today and if you missed my earlier post please check it out as well, as I have another great sketch challenge blog to introduce you to.

hugs my friends.....

The hot air balloon is so decorative and a great center piece for this card! Fab papers and colors too for a male card! Well done!

Great job! Love this masculine card with the hot air balloon. You make me want a cameo. Speaking of birthdays, I just returned from TN visiting my Mother to celebrate her 93rd birthday.
