A Relaxing and Reclining Kind of Birthday!

Good morning, everyone!

I bet you can't believe that I'm still making and posting cards to the blog!  But, I am!  In fact, we are camping right now, and I can't wait to get home so I can do some more!

Another card ordered by a friend for a masculine birthday.  These are always so difficult but with this new stamp set from PTI, it has made it easy!  I think this is the 3rd or 4th masculine birthday card that I have made using it.

Happy Birthday!

I absolutely loved the blues and greens for the color challenge for this card.  Since I only used the dies to cut out the recliner, I added a some paper piercing around the edge to give it some depth.

For the outside, the die cut "birthday" was done in the same patterned paper as the recliner to tie it all together!

 My inspiration for this card came from 3 different challenges.  The paper piercing idea came from SCS's CAS Challenge - Tool Time. The sketch and colors used came from Freshly Made's #89 Challenge and ColourQ's #192 Challenge.

Thanks for visiting, today!
