{SSS153 & WT369} Happy Birthday

Hi y'all! I've been on Spring Break this week - and enjoying every minute of it, I might add!! My favorite part is all the time I've been getting to spend in my stamp room. Love it!!

Andrew's dad's birthday is today, so I made this card for him. The layout is Sweet Stop Sketch #81, and I flipped it on its side to work with my image. This week for Sweet Stop Sketch #153 the Sugar Babies used past sketches, so I chose to use the one that Cathy and Wendy used. I am also playing along with the Ways to Use It Challenge #369 at SCS - to use your favorite coloring tool! I used Copic markers to color my image. The stamps are from the Taylored Expressions Love Grows Here set, and I used my favorite new masculine papers - This and That Charming by Echo Park. I emellished my card with some brown brads, Liquid Pearls, and a border cut out with the Monarch Border Dienamics by MFT Stamps.

Well, that's it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! :)
