Postale Favorite

Hi friends!  Welcome to another week!  Time seems to be flying by lately and I'm trying to get ready for the big father's day - mom's birthday - father-in-law's birthday card making extravaganza, since all of those things fall within a few days of each other.  Knowing that was coming, this week's Mojo Monday sketch was designed with clean lines for a little jump start on masculine cards.

I pulled out the new Wonderful Marvelous and an old favorite paper pack from 7 Gypsies to start in on this masculine birthday card.  I basically let the papers do most of the work, adding some sponging with antique linen and vintage photo distress ink, then a few piercings around a couple of the elements.  I built the sentiment Happy Birthday to my favorite Dad using four stamps from the set in Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler inks.  The Dad is stamped on the largest cut out from the Starry Die.  I finished off with a few wooden stars that I sponged with vintage photo ink and a sahara sand card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  If you're making Father's Day cards with a little Verve this week, be sure to link them up to our A Man's World Diva Dare for a chance to win a Verve gift voucher!
