Birthday Celebration with a Sketched Birthdays Sneak Peek

Today is my hubby’s birthday!  So, first off:

Happy Birthday, Scott!

After being together for 12 1/2 years, we’ve gone through a lot of changes and growing (though he will tell you that it was mostly me that had the growing to do! ha ha!)  But now he is the one getting old Smile  and so I guess the jokes on him!

So, today my mind is on birthdays so I thought I would share a birthday card I made recently.  This one was actually for my dad (his birthday was last week, so he’s seen this card already… don’t want to spoil the surprise for Scott’s card because he actually does see my blog when I least expect it!)

Psst – don’t recognize the stamp set?  That is because it is a NEW stamp set that is coming out May 31st!  This Sketched Birthdays stamp set has a number of images all related to birthdays in this same style of drawing.  I have to admit, I think it is cool because it is different from what I’ve had to play with for a while.

Plus it is great for masculine cards!

It’s a bit hard to see, but all I did was sponge around the large circle punch out with Early Espresso to get the darker shading and then cut out the Happy Birthday with the Banner Framelits and popped those up on dimensionals.

So, put it on your wishlist and watch for it to come out May 31st!
