SSSC51 - Urban Circus Birthday

Something Old, Something New...my Urban Oasis DSP is what's old and my Circle Circus stamp set is what's new. I needed a masculine birthday card for my brother-in-law and I think this qualifies. There are no bows, no pinks and no scalloped edges. I did use some brads, but I think they're OK ;)

I had two conversations this week about how hard it is to make masculine cards. I think Circle Circus is the perfect set to have. Pair it with some blues, greys or greens and you have a card good enough for your dad, brother, son or friend.

I hadn't used my Urban Oasis DSP in quite some time, so it was nice to work with an old friend. It's retired now and I am wishing I would have bought more. It's colors and designs are timeless.


Hope you like it...TFL!

Julie, You are so right on with this card- every detail, and there are lots of details, are perfect for a masculine card. Love the knotted ribbon, and paper piercing not to mention your use of Circle Circus! Fabulous colors too- I guess I just love everything about this! Thanks for sharing!
