Seize the Birthday #6

Happy Valentine's Day  :)
Birthday cards seem to be going out the door as fast as I can make them.  Which is why I love this challenge. I have to admit, cards seem to be made a little easier when there is inspiration to work from.
There is a new Seize the Birthday challenge posted, this week we are to make a masculine card from the sketch.
I started with a dark blue layer, then used these fabulous papers. I added circles in different sizes offset for my any shape. The sentiment is heat embossed in navy. I added a strip of navy then added twine a button to finish.

Supplies: Natural white and navy card stock, Designer Paper-Echo Park, The Stamps of Life-sentiments4circles, Spellbinders die cuts, twine, misc button.



  1. Love all the different circles and that tiwne! The button adds such a cute touch but it is still a great masculine card.

  2. This is an awesome card! I love the three circles together! So great for a guy card, which for me I find very hard to do.

  3. Any guy would be very pleased with that. I really like it. Hugs Polly x
