A Masculine Happy Birthday

The colors for Global Design Project color challenge this week automatically made my thoughts turn toward a masculine card.  I thought of a masculine Birthday card.  I originally tried to stamp these two-step stamps without the help of the Stamparatus, but it didn't work out so well for me,  I know there are lots of stampers our there who are able to create gorgeous projects with 2 and 3 step stamps using only the stamps and their own eyesight and steady hands to line up the stamps perfectly.  That does not work for me.   I ended up using the Stamparatus.  That tool has been a game changer for me and given me the ability to use 2 and 3 step stamps with confidence.

The inside of the card is even more birthday celebrations including the 2-step bow.

I entered this card in challenges that were appropriate for the sketch, color combination, and theme  Make sure you head on over to the challenges to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries..
