Birthday Card



It is a busy time for Birthdays I made this card for someone I work with. I needed a Masculine card, not very good at those. Thought a good start would be using "manly" colors, navy blue and biege. I used my SU wheel on the biege paper, it has been a long time since I have used my wheels, forgot how much fun they are. Can't see it too good in the picture but the candles on the cake have glitter on them. I used my creative memory circle cutters and cut out a circle in the center of the card and stamped the cake on a larger circle and placed on the inside of the card. I have been making some cards to take with me on vacation so will be posting those the next couple of days. Only 8 days to vacation.

Great guy card FLossie! Funny you should mention the SU wheel today, I was looking at them as I often do and wondered if they were easy to use? So exciting about your get away! You will have a blast! Does Hemmingway go to kitty motel? Deb
