Enjoy your special day - RS#99

Ok.  I promise not to whine in this post.  In case you didn't see it...or if you're even interested, click HERE to read my previous post.

I'm playing along with the current sketch at Retro Sketches rs#99.  Linking up with just a few hours to spare!

I created a masculine birthday card for a family member.

I used my Tipped Tops dies from PTI for the kraft and patterned paper layers. Before adhering the patterned paper, I took some Heidi Swapp bronzer color shine and splattered it onto the card.  If you look close you can see the shimmer.  I stamped my sentiment on a round die-cut tag, then added a bit of linen thread.  That's about it!

Thanks so much for stopping in; I love visitors. :)
