Birthday Boy

Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing with you a masculine card I made for my brother's birthday last week. I thought this older sketch from Taylor {TECC58} really had some masculine potential, so paired it with Seeing Stars and a sentiment from Wonderful Wishes and voila!



The ovals are cut with the Petite Ovals Nestabilities and I used a 1" square punch and the small SU! star punch for the 9 panels. And since the card was headed out on its way to its new home that very day, I even completed the inside, with the help of the handy dandy Top Note die from Stampin' Up! The inside sentiment is from the Fancy Florals set.

ETA: All stamping was done with Versafine Onyx Black. I colored with Copic Marker Spanish Olive YG97 (a pretty close match for Old Olive) and sponged the edges of the Kraft cardstock with Antique Linen Distress Ink by Ranger.
