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.
