Birthday Star

Hi friends! It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch challenge. My card this week is the one I made for Mark's birthday.

Handmade masculine birthday card by Julee Tilman using Verve Stamps. www.poeticartistry.blogspot.com

I started with the Birthday Bash set, stamping the cake image onto a tag cut from the Flourished Tag Die Set.  I then paper pieced the center of the cake and colored the rest with Copic markers.  I stenciled some dots down the side of the tag and then stamped a few stars and cut them out to scatter around the cake.

I stamped the birthday sentiment on the green polka dot panel, then cut some stars with the Starry Die  and inked them up, adding a bit of an outline with a marker.  The soft sky layer is lightly stamped tone on tone with two of the star stamps from the set, then I finished with some twine and a bow accented with a metallic star.  A super fun masculine card.
