SSSC 233

Happy Sunday I'm back today with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch 233 - now I must confess when I first saw this sketch I was stumped....



I decided to go with a clean and simple card and sentiment


The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Paper smooches Happy Birthday set.  I used stazon Midnight blue ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  For the background I used a moroccan tiles stencil (sorry I don't know how its from) and light texture paste.  Once the paste dried I added some colour using pumice stone and faded blue jeans distress ink.  For the embellishment I kept it simple since it's a male card and just added 2 buttons



Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers Blogs to see their creations and if you play along remember to link your card on Karen's blog



Thanks for stopping by!
