Another Masculine Birthday Card for TSOT#365

Hello All!

Today’s Card is for a Sketch Challenge


an Optional Theme: Shades of One Color

Here is the Challenge!


I tried to upload the picture from the site and I could print it, but I couldn’t get

it to show up in my file, it was blank! So I printed it out and then took a picture of it,

to upload to my file, so I could retrieve it to show the challenge!


Here is my Card!


The Colors I used to make Shades of One Color:

Light: Pool Party, Medium: Bermuda Bay, Dark: Tranquil Tide

For my Neutral, I used Very Vanilla


Here is the inside of my card!



Mr. Hubster said I scored again on this one! Has minimal foo-foo factor!

I do try to do my best!!!

Here is my Card again!


I love the simplicity of this Card!

But I’m thinking it needs something…if I add any bling, it’ll ‘fem’ it up.

I know!

When I go to use this card…I will cut out the numbers, in Bermuda Bay!

It will be the age of the recipient! I can mount the on top of the cake!

Plenty of room to do that! Hah!

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

Until the next Post…Blessings and ‘ageless’ birthdays to you ALL!
