Of course, I couldn't let this wonderful occasion pass without making him a special card. Karen's latest sketch provided just the inspiration.
The lovely Urban Garden and Urban Oasis DSPs work wonderfully for masculine cards. I think you can never go wrong with stripes for men.
I cut 1 1/8" squares of DSP and mounted them on Baja Breeze card before mounting that on Kiwi Kiss card. The Congratulations circle, and the diamond centre panel have both been attached with dimensionals.
I have also decided to take a leaf out of the very talented Kim's book and start decorating the inside of cards a bit more often. I think it's a lovely touch. If you haven't seen her work yet, pop on over to her blog.
Congratulations Grandad. We are all so very proud of you.
