I thought I would try my hand at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge - and this is #187 - Karen is a crazy girl!! and totally dedicated to her sketches!
Ron's brother is turning 60 on July 1st - yep! a Canada Day baby! so I took the opportunity to put together a birthday card for him. And look at me go - it's a masculine card - difficult for me!
I haven't EVER used my MFT Die-namics Jersey and Stamp Set, although I have had it for at least a year - BAD!
I die-cut the man's T-shirt and then stamped the #60 in Orange Fizz ink and then arranged the letters to say "SHARP" and stamped it in Hot Fudge ink.
The lines on the T-shirt are from Lollipop Additions -Love, and I stamped them along the bottom and sleeves of the shirt.
My paper is from Studio Calico - Here + There 6x6 paper pad and I chose to sew around the edges of my panels - the same as Karen - yes I am a copy cat at times.....
I added brads in the corners but still thought that it looked kind of drab.....so I swiped around the edges with white paint!
For the inside of the card I die-cut the Die-namics Party Banner from more Here + There designer paper.
The sentiment was stamped with Orange Fizz and Hot Fudge ink using the Clearly Sentimental Birthday Sentiments.
I used the smallest little sentiment to stamp along the top of the banner.
Thanks for coming around today - I'm off to play!
