CAS(E) this Sketch #22 & Simon Says Happy Birthday



I have a card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!  I haven't played in a few weeks so it feels good to get back into it.  I have a need for masculine cards over the next while so I decided to take this sketch and make it masculine. For some reason when I think of a tag I think more feminine cards kind of fou fou and cutesy.  By choosing a masculine patterned paper and adding a clip to the top the card has a more grungy feel to it.  I am also submitting my project to the Simon Says Happy Birthday challenge.




All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  Kraft
Patterned Paper: SN@P Basics (Simple Stories)
Stamps: Background Basics Circles, Birthday Basics (PTI) Envelope Sentiments (Simon Says Stamps)
Ink:  Simply Chartreuse, True Black
Dies: Tag Sale #7
other: foam tape, metal clip

Love this. Clean, crisp, a bit of shine with the clip, and perfect for a guy. Perfect bit of edging on the tag. Super. Bev
