Boy, do I love Friday. Such a great feeling to have those two days looming ahead, filled with possibilities. That, what I call, "Friday Feeling" was something that I missed when I worked in retail. Managing a store, Friday-Sunday were some of the busiest days, and I rarely had them off. Not that Saturday is the super lazy day it was in my college years, but still a day with less routine :)
Today's card is one of those "dreaded" guy cards...however, pulling out some new stamps from Scrolls Work made making a guy card child's play! It came together quickly and easily and I love the outcome.
I decided to keep it neutral and I used the Kit 2 Lg. Round #2538 medallion stamp for the background which gives the card a slight vintage feel. The main image is Large Birdie stamp #5531, and after I stamped him, I colored him in softly with chalks. The chalk is also what gives that soft shading around the Nestie cut-out. The fun, quirky sentiment (Old Bird #1037) will make this a great birthday card for someone with a good sense of humor!
Along with the string that I added to give the card some texture, I used a punch I would normally use for sentiments, in a more creative way. As a base for three brads, it becomes a cool design element on the card. Always happy when I manage to think outside the box!
Well, that's it for me... Here are the challenges this card is linked to...Until next time, Happy Friday to you!
