I was flipping through my unused stamps looking for an idea for a gentlemen at work. I saw this bold happy birthday and remembered the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch. It inspired me to add this bold sentiment along the bottom with one little image - although I did not totally follow the sketch because I did not put it off the edge.
This is an older stamp set from My Favorite Things that is new-to-me. I got it specifically for easy cards especially for guys. It is super quick to use, especially in just two colors, and it adds interest without being frilly. Thank goodness for easy stamps and for sketch inspiration because I needed this card really quickly. Working from home has me totally off-kilter; I hadn't even realized it was June and there's a gentlemen at the office with a June 1 birthday. Oops!
I went an entirely different direction the first time this sketch was around - and I even went off the edge! Here's my autumn card
with a big golden leaf.
