Happy Birthday Scott! 23

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, December 9, 2009 @ 10:54 AM |

Hi Girls! Today we are celebrating my husband's 48th birthday :) He is such a wonderful man, I don't know where to begin to tell you ALL the things that make him special. The list is ENDLESS! I don't want to bore you with babbling on about my DH - just wanted to share that it is his birthday & that he is very special! Unfortunately, he has an appointment with the dentist today to have a crown applied to a tooth :( He hides his age well, not one wrinkle on that beautiful brown skin! This is a photo of Scott with my baby girl Gretchen! I find it really challenging to make a masculine card! Thank goodness he likes ANYTHING I make, including flowers :) For sketch inspiration, I played along with Beate's fun Weekend Sketch Challenge #109, WSCC109, which is the last sketch of this year for her :( Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!







Here is Scott's Happy Birthday card:
I can't put my finger on it, but it seems like this card is sort of "naked". Like something is missing? I suppose it is more of a clean & simple sort of layout. I hope he is happy when he sees it!

I inked up the SU French Script background stamp with SU Chocolate Chip ink & stamped in on the SU Natural's cs then used the Spellbinder's Blossom die to cut out the multi-layers for the Blossom. I inked the edges with Ranger Tea Dye ink then crumpled them up a bit for a vintagey look.

Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Fancy Flourishes & Flower Garden, SU French Script Paper: K&Company DP, SU Not Quite Navy, Natural Ivory, Creamy Caramel Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Ranger Tea Dye Sprinkles: Spellbinder's Blossom & Labels 9 dies, EK Success border punch, Offray ribbon, gold cord & button from stash, Making Memories hardware

What a wonderful card, Mona! I love your vintage layered flowers! Happy Birthday to Scott (that cake looks pretty yummy, too!)!!!

Hey Mona--Love Scott's card. The vintage looking flower is perfect. You do it so well, and the blues are just perfect for Scott. Like the vintagey look at the bottom. Everything comes together just perfect for a Happy "Masculine" Birthday. Hope he has a great day. Sue M.

Wonderful card Mona. It is hard for me to do a masculine card as well. Guess it is just because we are extra gilry. :o)
He looks great for 48... Maybe he can bottle his secret and sell it to us less unfortunate people.
