For this card I had 3 different challenges in mind: a sketch, a masculine birthday theme and a color scheme of black&white with a touch of color.
The card came together rather quickly as I found ready cut items in my stash of non used items. I don't know about you, but I've got a rather large selection of items that are already cut, colored and stamped, items I had planned to use for other cards, but during the process I changed my mind of design, color and/or theme.
The bingo chart, which is the item that adds a bit of color, and the boots are cut out parts from 2 different DPs, the birthday greeting is stamped and I die cut a circle to put around the date of the birthday. I'm really early with this card, since the birthday is March 7, I just hope I haven't forgotten about this card once March 2015 is here, lol. The background DP is from MME "all things CHALK".
This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #54 Sketch
2) TIME OUT Challenges - Happy Birthday (optional twist masculine)
3) Come and Get It - Black, White and a Splash of Color
