Masculine Birthday


Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Summer is winding down and school is getting ready to start for my grandsons. They go back after labor day. They never complain too much about the start of school. So that's always good.
My daughter-in-law took them out this weekend for back to school shopping. They  like doing that -surprising because their boys. Maybe because they are getting stuff (lol)!!
Well anyway onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #441 on Splitcoaststampers. Becky is our hostess and she chose some great masculine colors. She wants us to use navy, Cajun craze and soft sky.
My background designer paper is from Stampin-Up’s “natural composition” collection. Using this color as my neutral. I thought the musical score would be good for a masculine birthday card. The navy chevron designer paper  is from Stampin-Up’s “etcetera” collection.

I used the MFT chevron die and cut a strip in Cajun craze to line the navy panel. Cut a flag from the MFT “flag stax” die. Turned my designer paper over and stamped my MFT sentiments in night of navy.

Punched a few stars to complete my card. The layout is one I found on Pinterest and it was a design from Jen Del Muro. I made changes to make it my own.
Well that's it for me for today. So until next time........God Bless
