OCC Challenge - Masculine Birthday

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Hello and Happy Weekend!!!  Today I have new challenge from Our Creative Corner to share with you.  This week we are focusing on masculine birthday cards.  If you are like me, you find it difficult to put down the ribbon, flowers, and butterflies.  I do like a challenge!


I knew I really wanted to use these brads that look like screws.  I've had them forever and have only used them a handful of times.  So, I created three long panels that look like they are screwed down.  Underneath those panels is a layer of cork.  It gives the card an earthy sort of feel.

I love this sentiment, "Dude, You Rock".  Since this is a birthday card challenge, I finished off the inside with a "Happy Birthday" sentiment.

I would love for you to participate in the Our Creative Corner challenge this week.  Head on over to the OCC blog to get some inspiration from the Design Team.

I hope you all have a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!!!

Wow, this is FABULOUS, Dana. I really love the bold blue and your use of the cork and screw brads. The whole thing has such a CAS look, but is so bold and powerful. Perfect guy card!!
