Masculine Birthday

Blessing to you on this Good Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We have a service at church tonight to celebrate Good Friday and then Sunday of course will be our Easter service.

My hubby went to the wholesale house today and picked up lots of flowers (lilies,tulips, hyacinths and hydrangeas) to decorate the front of our church. It will be a beautiful site on Easter morning.

We have a family dinner planned and I am finalizing my recipes today so I can do my food shopping tomorrow. Sunday it is supposed to rain but our temps will be 55°-whoo- hoo a heat wave.

Now onto my card for today. Today is my day to post on the Great Impressions Stamps blog as part of the design team. I am doing a 3 part series on masculine cards on that blog.

I cut my card shape with a Spellbinders eyelet circle die in more mustard cardstock. My card layout is an older De-constructed Sketch #88.  My colors are from this week's Splitcoaststampers color challenge #419.

My background designer paper is from the Stampin-Up “autumn spice” collection. I thought the more mustard paper had a masculine tone to it.

My turquoise panel is using the Cuttlebug “swiss dots” embossing folder. I used a corner rounder on this panel. The center flag is cut with the MFT fishtail flags stax die in daffodil delight cardstock.

My cupcake image is the Great Impressions Stamp- E524. I paper pieced  and then fussy cut the cupcake and colored the candle with markers.  I cut a Spellbinders labels 10 in naturals ivory and sponged it with more mustard ink. The cupcake is layered over this die.

The sentiment is the Great Impressions Stamps  "just because you're you -F200.  I used just the "happy birthday" portion of the sentiment. And for placement, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig.

Well, that's my card for today. I hope you have a blessed Easter and a wonderful weekend. So until next time.......God bless.
