Masculine Sea Street Birthday, PPA207, CC12 & DS155

Greetings on this Monday morning, Stampers! This is the first time I've posted on a Monday in a while! For the last month or so, I've been spending all my Sundays in my sorely neglected garden. It's finally starting to get back in shape, so as things start growing and blooming, I promise to share some pictures! 

Yesterday I was able to squeeze in both stamping and a little gardening, and I came up with this clean and layered masculine birthday card. I never seem to have enough of those! I used the new Sea Street Stamp Set and coordinating Maritime DSP.

I'm playing along in three challenges today. Haven't done that in a while, either! I'm playing along with sketch at The Deconstructed Sketch, the theme challenge at The Card Concept, and the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts, though I substituted Night of Navy for the now retired Midnight Muse.

I simple stamped image on the inside carries the nautical theme through...

... and of course, the envelope does, too.

Stamp Sets: Sea Street, Blooming with Kindness
Card Stock: Whisper White, Real Red, Night of Navy
Designer Series Paper: Maritime
Ink Pads: Real Red, Night of Navy

Thanks for paying me a visit today! Please leave me some inky love in the form of a comment!
