Hi friends! It's Friday and that means it's time for a new sketch over on the Viva la Verve Sketch blog. This week's hostess is Jen Shults. As I mentioned earlier this week, I'm on a masculine kick since I've got a couple family birthdays we're celebrating this weekend.
The only stamping is the Birthday to You sentiment on the crumb cake circle. I hand cut the banners from the Down by the Shore papers and also ran the Starry Die through with the same papers to make my layered stars. The navy piece is embossed with the chicken wire embossing folder, then sanded, then I layered it onto a distressed piece of white cardstock embossed with the same folder. After a bit of ink smudging, I flipped the sketch horizontally to cover up my boo boo.
That's all about the card. Created this yesterday during a VERY short naptime, right before the boys ended up having horrible coughing/asthma attacks. Spent the evening in urgent care and Kellan, Trevor and I are now all stocked up on inhalers, breathing treatments and high powered cough syrup to try to finally kick this illness. I've got great healing hopes for the weekend! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous Valentine's Day and a great weekend!
