Seize the Birthday #10



I finally created a masculine card for the Seize the Birthday challenge.  I have the same difficulties I read about all the time with creating masculine cards.  I think it is because there are so many cute girlie stamps out there that it just makes it easier.  I am using a cute free digi image from The Alley Ways Stamps for my card today, the puppy is just adorable.  Here is the sketch for this week:






All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  Blueberry Sky, White
Patterned Papers: gold dot (Lily Bee Designs)
Stamps: Birthday Basics
Digital Image: The Alley Ways Stamps
Ink:  True Black
Dies: Stitched Mats (Lil' Inkers)
other: browns twine (The Twinery), foam tape, assorted Copics

This is so cute Tracey!! I love that little doggy! I just used him on a card the other day! And great job doing a "man" card! I have a really hard time with them too.

This is an awesome masculine card, although I know 2 girls who would love a card like this, and more importantly, a dog like this. I won't tell you who they are, because I wish to remain dogless! Love your coloring, too.
