I See You



Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday. This time around there are no "Toppings", so it's Anything Goes Birthday. As long as it's a birthday card, you are good to go! 


The DT have come up with such beautiful cards this week and mine pales in comparison, but I needed something a little more masculine for my DH's birthday which is coming up soon, and he prefers CAS cards. I recently made a similar, more feminine version, which inspired this one. If you're interested you can see the other version here


I used Amy's layout from this week's challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. The Libra in me loves the beautiful symmetry. Hmm, I wonder if Amy is a Libra, too? 
I rotated the sketch thusly, as I wanted the orientation to coincide with my inside sentiment...


... and here is the inside sentiment. A little snarky, but DH will get a kick out of it and it goes with the glasses theme.


As I used Simon products for my card, I'm also adding it to the gallery at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is Anything Goes.

Stamp Sets: I See You (Simon Says Stamp), Endless Birthday Wishes (Stampin' Up)
Card Stock: White, Fog (Simon Says Stamp), Espresso (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Welcome Home (Carta Bella)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Cup O' Joe (Hero Arts)
Tools: Big Shot, I See You Dies (Simon Says Stamp)
Accessories: Enamel Dots (My Mind's Eye)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

You already know I love the inside of your card, and I love the outside too! FUN!

Oh, Yes, I love these glasses. I think they are great and can be used in so many ways. I guess you could color in the lenses and make the sunglasses too. You can tell the sun is out today!

This is a great idea for a masculine card, and - no surprise - I love the inside sentiment!

Fantastic card! I love your interpretation of the sketch. Fun themed card.

What a fabulous masculine card! And I love the slightly snarky sentiment on the inside. Clever way to rotate the sketch, and no, I'm not a Libra (Scorpio, here), but I do love symmetry and clean lines. I love what you've done with this card, Sandy! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
