Masculine Monday: Happy Birthday!

In keeping with my promise to share a masculine card every Monday, I’m here with one I created over the weekend for my guest designer spot on this week’s Clean & Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.  We’re to try our hand at the Chalkboard Technique!

Stamps:  SU (Circle Circus), Paper Trey (Birthday Basics)
Ink:  SU (Whisper White), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Paper:  SU cardstock (Basic Gray, Marina Mist)
Accessories:  silver pearls, foam dots, chalk

I stamped different sized circles in Whisper White ink, chalking over them with a bluish color to match the Marina Mist cardstock.  I then added the simple sentiment and three silver pearls.  I popped up the layered center panel with some foam dots for dimension and I was done!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We ended up taking a spontaneous family trip Friday into Saturday.  It was absolutely beautiful weather Friday, so we headed to a zoo not far from us and then spent the night in a motel so the boys could go swimming!  It’s been much too long since we had a chance to do those things!  Now onward and forward into the new week!

Have a marvelous Monday!
