Masculine Sponged Birthday Card

This card is a result of goofing up a YouTube video and trying something different. Sometimes mistakes lead us to better places!

I had a lot of fun making this, and although the shading isn't as nicely transitioned as so many other cards, I like the ruggedness of this one. After creating the background I thought it would make a nice guy birthday card.

Using assorted colors of ink, I stamped the words using Stampin' Up!'s "Layered Letters." (As a note, there is no apostrophe in the set, so I cut the @ symbol to make one since I thought I'd never use it.)

Lastly I sponged the edges with Night Of Navy ink and added some stars from a very old Stampin' Up! Set called "Starstruck."

Even when our cards aren't perfect, getting experience (and relaxing by creating something fun) is what crafting is all about.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and have a blessed day!
