Masculine Monday: A Directional Birthday

I’m off to a slow start today and am simply blaming it on Monday! Monday takes the blame for a lot things, doesn’t it?!

I whipped up a quick birthday card this morning while the house was still fairly quiet.  It’s so nice to start the day with a little quiet time, especially when energy is dragging!

Stamps:  Uniko Studio (Arrows), Paper Trey (Birthday Basics)
Paper:  Paper Trey cardstock (white)
Ink:  SU (Gumball Green, Pacific Point), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Accessories:  black gemstones

I stamped the arrow border, inking the two rows of arrows in different colors.  The sentiment was stamped three times and then black gemstones were added as embellishments.  Simple as that!

We’re still recovering from our Michigan vacation.  It always seems to take a few days to catch up on sleep and energy!  We had a wonderful time away!  We found some sweet cherries to pick, plenty of sand and waves to explore and I was even able to convince DH to stop and let me pick up a few fresh, handmade chocolate truffles…pure indulgence!  I shared.  I promise.

Have a marvelous Monday!

    Wonderful masculine card. That double row of arrows is such a good idea, and they're in great colors. That truffle doesn't look half bad either ; ) ! My favorite sentiment is the one you've used here. It's just so clean and crisp. Great card. Bev
