A Masculine Big Day Birthday

Hi All,

Hope you are all doing well.  I am back today with a Guest Designer post for Sunday Stamps.  I have had a lot of fun with these ladies - thanks so much Holly for letting me spend the month with you all!

This week is a super fun colour combination - Soft Sky, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate and Very Vanilla.  I was inspired by the inspiration photo as well - it screams birthday (and baby but I'm going with birthday on this one!) to me!  I encourage you all to head over to Sunday Stamps to check out the rest of the fabulous DT creations and of course, play along!!

Here is my creation:

I will be entering this card in a couple of other challenges as well:

I have decided not to use the "toppings" options this week and to play along with the "Anything Goes" portion of the challenge.

It is also an "Anything Goes" week over at Addicted to Stamps.  :)


I'm so glad to be adding to my birthday card stash - it is so needed!!  Especially masculine ones.
