Relax, Its Your Birthday!

SEE MY BLOG CANDY CHALLENGE POST HERE!
Challenge ends July 31st.

Yet another one of those cards that I picked up, put down, picked up, put down, etc, etc. I tend to have issues with masculine cards to begin with -- I think its because you can't really be "cutesy" with masculine cards. But then I always feel they come out looking too simple. I had no choice on this one though and ended up going very simple the whole way -- right down to the plain Arial font! It doesn't get much simpler than this, and believe me, I fought the urge to throw flowers, rhinestones any bows many many times. 

The digi is from DigiStamp Boutique. It was introduced at Father's Day I believe (which will tell you how long I've been picking it up and putting it back down). I bumped it up with foam squares and then did the same with the punched out polka dots.

CARD DESIGN:
Stamps: DigiStamp Boutique - "Just Snoozing..."
Ink: PC, Prismacolor Pencils, Chalks
Paper: My Mind's Eye
Embellishments: Punches, Foam Squares

Thanks for stopping by!

This is a great masculine card, Alissa. Love the dp you used and the layout of your card is just perfect.

I tend to have trouble with masculine cards as well.
