Scrappy Birthday!

  It's my turn on the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog.  I still have bits from this My Mind's Eye collection called Indie Chic "Nutmeg."  It is my go-to collection for masculine cards with these wonderful patterns in shades of blue.

  My card evolved from a small scrap of the blue tone-on-tone circles paper.  I rounded opposite corners and inked the edges.  Then I coordinated three other patterns in blue.  Even the grey-ish banner is scrap piece from in the collection.  I stamped the sentiment and added twine.  Tip:  to keep my twine from unraveling, I dab a tiny dot of glossy accents on the ends.   They end up looking a little bit like shoe laces.


Supplies:
papers:  My Mind's Eye Indie Chic "Nutmeg" Boy CheckerFamily Laurel Burst (both sides), and Memories Tapestry; XPEDX navy linen card stock
adhesive:  Xyron 900
sentiment:  My Pink Stamper "Birthday Doodles" stamp set
twine:  The Twinery charcoal

Happy Tuesday!
