Birthday Best

This was one of those challenges where I saw the colours and thought, "what". But as soon as I pulled the cardstock out I went "OH!". They look fabulous together! I looked through my little black book of sketches and found this one. It's a slight twist on a favorite of mine. I thought these colours seemed pretty masculine so I went with a masculine-ish birthday card using a retired set, All The Best. For the leaves, I inked them up with a wasabi spot, then outlined with a blender pen dipped in Bayou reinker. Then to blend it all together, I gently tapped the spot back over the image once more.

Stamps: It's Your Birthday, All The Best
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Blue Bayou, Not Quite Navy
Paper: Wild Wasabi (plain and textured), white, bayou, banana
Accessories, etc.: blender pen, stitched grosgrain, pop dots.


  1. Wonderful masculine card! When I saw those colours it frightened me at first too! LOL!

  2. This is such a classy card. Who would have thought those colors would work so nicely together? Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. I love this stamp set - I used to use the star stamp all the time. Your card is fab!

  4. Natasha, I love this. So cute!
