Yay! Its your birthday!

Hi there!

Time for a masculine card  !

I still had the left over speech bubble from this card on my desk, when my eye caught some challenges with the perfect fit .

It made today's card came together in just a few minutes! Love it when that happens 😁

I used :

  • Simon says stamp ~ Abstract triangle background stamp
  • Simon says stamp ~ Big Birthday Wishes
  • Promarkers
  • Speech bubble cutting file from the Silhouette store #1804589
  • Versafine black ink
  • Promarkers
  • Misti

I was a bit stuck with the color palette for the card. Design-seeds to the rescue .... using color inspiration  from THIS PIN

Sharing my card at :

It worked so well to color in only some of the triangles. You've got me thinking about my own background stamps and how I might use your technique with them. I think this idea works especially well for masculine cards. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

I love that background you created, Hannelie and it's just perfect with that big, bold sentiment. So glad you joined us at the Players again this week

This is so cool I had to go look up the background stamp. Love it!

What a fabulous design, Hannelie! I thought at first that your background was patterned paper, then I realized it was a stamp colored in. I love your minimal coloring; it is spot on! Love the Milton quote, too, btw! Thanks for playing along at Freshly Made Sketches!
