I made this birthday card for a couple challenges. Yesterday as soon as I saw the sketch at Cards for Men Challenge #13 I knew I wanted to use it. I have quite a few birthdays coming up in July so I thought I better get started. Come to think about it, I think they are all guys/boys. My BFF has three of her boy's birthdays coming up in July and all in a row. I guess Oct was a very "ACTIVE" *wink* *wink* month for her. LOL.
The Corrosive Challenge #69. It is to use Black and White then add one other color. Incy Wincy Designs Challenge #47 wanted us to incorporate Music into our card. It's funny how I have a mental inventory of everything I own. I can tell you if I have a certain kind of paper or if I have that stamp you could use. So when I was putting this card together I just knew I had paper with music on it. Sure enough with a little digging I found it, and the background was black so it was meant to be. Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #2 asked us to use ribbon as a border. I can't believe I found the perfect color orange to match everything but there it is. Even though this card will be for a guy it is ok to put ribbon on it - Right? It's not a girly thing is it? Well last but not least Polka Doodles Week #24 Challenge is to make a card for a man/guy. Got that covered.
I sure do hope anybody that stops by enjoys my cards as much as I enjoy making them and mostly giving them.
Have a wonderful Tuesday.
