June Birthday

This card is for my other half who has a birthday soon. Soppy, yes, but he deserves it!

June birthday

This is firstly a CASE of one of Ardyth’s cards for Muse #218 this week (Happy Birthday Ardyth!). (Ardyth’s was itself inspired by a card by Donna3D on Splitcoast Stampers but I didn’t look at that one.)

I kept Ardyth’s rainbow smooshing (though mine is paint rather than ink), heart die cut (and added another heart cut layer).

I changed the floral stamp, as I thought swirls were more appropriate for a male card. I added another layer for the sentiment, for interest, as I didn’t have the grey background layer.

I’m also entering this one into The Male Room Die Cut Challenge #61 – Stash.

and Watercooler Wednesday’s WWC121 – Anything Goes  challenge

And the haiku for this one:

Have a happy day:
Your support lights me like sun
Above the clouds. Thanks!

    Helen, I love your CASE. You’ve kept true to the original and yet brought some wonderful touches of your own which really make it perfect for the man in your life. Love the choice of swirls. That sentiment is sure to touch his heart. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
