Time to celebrate!



I know it is only June, but July will be here before you know it and I have several male birthdays to plan for in July. Usually I am scrambling at the last minute to make a card. That is NOT the best time to create! Nancy at Just Us Girls has a sketch challenge this week that is the perfect inspiration for a male card.


Since I have been trying to enter other challenges, I decided to make the same card using the challenge colors over at The Card Concept under the clean and layered category. The twine I used on this card is hand made. I show how here on this blog posting.  I never buy twine any more, I make my own!!





So, head on over to Just Us Girls the other designers take on the sketch. Be sure to show us your creations!

Stamps used: Make A Wish
                     Casual Fridays: Bold Wishes
