Masculine Birthday card

I made this card for my sweet sweet sister's dh, my #1 b-i-l (hi, James!)

I made the main image in Jennifer McGuire's Color My World class in September. I am pretty sure the stamp and base card is Hero Arts and the shape die is Tim Holtz. The inks are Tim Holtz distress inks Broken China and???? I layered the main panel on Core'dinations card stock (a dark grey) and fussy cut. The base layer is a navy Bazzill embossed with Cuttlebug Stars embossing folder(I'm not sure why it is not showing up in my is nicer IRL.) I added star embellies (punched from white card stock and gem stars, courtesy of Jennifer McGuire.)

Speaking of birthdays...EAD designs is sponsoring this week's challenge at Betty Bee's Buzz. Betty and the HoneyBees will be making birthday cards using fabulous stickerz by EAD designs (these will post Wednesday, December 8th.) In the meantime, head over to Betty Bee's Buzz to see an inspirational video on ways to use EAD stickerz by HoneyBee Court! She is fabulous, I promise :)

Happy Monday!!!

Niiice. I have this same piece of art. Oh, yeah, because we TOOK THE SAME CLASS! Oh, and I found this swirl stamp in a bag. Uh-huh. How sad. I might just have to take it out and use it. :)

You are correct, it is nicer IRL. It is beautiful just like the person that created it!
