Paper Players Birthday Card

I thought I would use this week's Paper Players challenge for my husband's birthday card. His birthday is this Friday . I tried a new color combo and don't know if the combo is appropriate for a masculine card. - mmmm.  I like the combination and am definitely going to use it again in the future, but may try something a little more "manly" for my man. I love, love this simple and fabulous layout provided by the Paper Players Challenge. This is definitely one for the file.

Stamps - Bring on the Cake, Birthday Bakery (hostess)
Ink - marina mist, pumpkin pie, concord crush, old olive and basic black
Paper - Play Date DSP, concord crush, old olive, marina mist, pumpkin pie and whisper white card stock
Accessories - pumpkin pie brads, curly label punch, 1" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, dimensionals


  1. How cool! I do like the color combination! And...I am glad you liked the layout! You did a fabulous job with it!

  2. What a fun card----I think I glossed right over that birthday set.....it's looking pretty interesting, now that I look at it a little more! Great use of the sketch!

  3. This is a great card! Love how you have used the new birthday set and the sketch layout! Thanks for playing with us at The Paper Players!

  4. This is a great "man's" card! The colour combo is refreshing. Thanks for joining the Paper Players this week!

  5. Tara, I think you did a fabulous job with the layout. This is a very cool combo. I love the double tag on the right hand side and the little cake in the circle. Happy Birthday, hubby! I hope you both have a wonderful day celebrating with the family
    So glad you joined us again at the Paper Players
