Hi everyone, and a Happy New Year to you! Today it's time for our first challenge of 2018 at Seize the Birthday. To help you get back in the crafty swing of things, we've made it real easy: Anything Goes Birthday!
I am always, always in short supply of masculine birthday cards and needed one right away, so that's what inspired my first card of the year. I also went searching for stamp sets that hadn't seen much love yet, and this was one of them. I love the simple feather pen for a masculine card, and I thought the patterned paper coordinated perfectly. I colored the feather with Copic markers, then added some detail with a colored pencil.
I was also inspired by the colors at Color Throwdown. I love a masculine card in neutral colors!
