Seize the Birthday #8 Masculine

Yeah, I got my card done for Sketch #8 at Seize the Birthday which this week is for a masculine birthday card. 

I have played in all of their challenges up until last week and my crazy schedule just didn't allow enough hours in my day.
So I am extremely happy to join in this week again.

I created my own Happy Birthday text in my MDS program making the background text a bit opaque and then using the bold key for my main sentiment. This was super simple and I will be trying some more varieties in the future. The lovely mailbox is a new digital stamp that I purchased during the birthday bash sale last month at Beccy's Place  and I will enter this also in her monthly challenge. I love it! and the great part is it comes in an outline which I used and a colored version.  I used my Spectrum Noir Markers on this.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope to be by soon to see you!
Have a wonderful week.

Great job colouring the image Patti, I love the colours you chose and the way you swiped in some blue in the background to give the impression of a wide open sky. Well done!
