Hi everyone, I have a quick post today, I made this card yesterday for the Viva La Verve sketch challenge over at SCS. I wanted a masculine card, so I kept the design very simple and clean, and I found my self having a really hard time with it, I'm so used to putting ribbon and pearls, flowers and all kinds of embellishments, that when it comes to making a masculine card or a CAS card I get stuck. Used some papers from Basic Grey, the embossing diamond pattern on the blue paper was made with an embossing folder from Sizzix. I stamped the birthday sentiment on white vellum and placed over the cutout blue paper which I stamped with a clock image from a Tim Holtz stamp set.
