A Big Happy Birthday - Masculine

Needing a masculine birthday card for a family member offers incentive to use a challenge for inspiration. Come visit us at Color My Heart Color Dare Tic-tac-toe Challenge #299 and play along with the challenge. I went with the left column, using Juniper, Toffee and Black, then added Nutmeg with the brown patterned paper and gold with the plaid patterned paper and, of course, white.

A panel of plaid paper was adhered to a white card base. The image was stamped, colored, fussy cut and adhered to patterned paper. The banners were added then the sentiment was backed with foam tape and adhered to the card base. The inside of the card was decorated using the same patterned paper.

Don't miss out on the challenge! Visit the Color Dare Blog and see how easy it is to join in. You may be eligible for a prize.
