Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Card Sketch Challenge: Remembering Your Birthday

Happy Monday!  We had a great weekend that was really busy with lots of family fun that's always great.  We also enjoyed the break in cold weather, even if it was just for a day.  Today it's time for the monthly card sketch over on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog.  We were given a really fun sketch challenge this month and I used it for a birthday card I needed this month.

I started with Island Indigo cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Going Gray card stock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Chevron Embossing Folder.  Next I took a piece of Gold Foil Paper and cut half  a circle out with the Big Shot and Circle Collection Framelits.  Then I used the Little Letters Thinlits Dies to cut out the H and B and used the negative image for my card.

I added a piece of Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon as an accent.  The greeting is from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set, it was stamped in Island Indigo ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut out with the Itty Bitty Framelits (and then I sponged around the edge with Basic Gray ink).

This card really turned out great, I love it's simplicity and since my friend with the birthday is a guy it's a perfect "dude" card.  The other designers came up with some great cards for inspiration so please check them out on the blog and then come play along and see what you can come up with.
