belated birthday wishes...

Hey friends!!! Enjoying a beautiful Sunday here in the Pacific Northwest!  The sky is a beautiful blue and I can see Mt. Rainier and the Olympic mountains from my neighborhood!!!  Have a little card to share that I made for a few challenges:  Viva La Verve March - wk 1, Verve March Diva Inspiration - birthdays and Just us Girls - masculine.  I went with a masculine birthday card.


This was one of those cards that took entirely way too long to make.  Mostly because of me, lol!!  Sometimes I just get a little too wrapped up in making things look "right".  It didn't help that I took a sketch for a square card and turned it into one for a rectangular card.   That's where the "making it look right" came in, lol!   Anyway... finally got it finished.  I used the Verve set Little Packages and some patterned papers from the Teresa Collins Memorabilia 6x6 pad.  Lots of die cutting on this one... more die cutting than I have done in a while. 


Have a happy day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft; Recollections white; PP:  Teresa Collins; Stamps:  Verve; Dies:  Verve, My Favorite Things and Spellbinders;  Inks:  Memento London Fog and Rich Cocoa; VersaFine Onyx Black

All the time and hard work really paid off! Sometimes cards take longer than they ever should, don't they?! This card is so fantastic!

Cute take on the challenge and sketch. I'm just up the coast from you in BC and we can see Mt. Baker. Simply amazing weather indeed :) Heck, I had to mow my lawn last weekend and the cherry and magnolia trees are blooming!
