One more Birthday card, Just Add Ink #357
I have lots of birthdays this time of year. Hubby, Me, grandsons, a brother who passed away at age 30, how do you send a card? Such a long time ago, but I always think about him this time of year.
I think I need the Motorbike set for him, he loved them and was the mechanic for his group for all the motorcycles.
This one is a bit feminine for him however, I do tend to love those kinds of cards. I'm afraid I was pulling down sets all over the place for this card, it's just like that sometimes. I even got out the Papillion Potpourri set. It's been in the catalog for a long time, mine is old enough it's still in the old style case. I need to get it out more, such a pretty set, but :( the bitty butterfly punch used here is retiring. I'm keeping mine, along with this set and the bold butterfly dies and the Butterflies thinlits.
Anyway, Just Add Ink had a color challenge this week. Some great colors! Go here to check it out.
I have to admit, Sahara Sand is my least favorite color in the SU line up. I do have a pack of the CS, just so in case I need it, but I've never gotten the ink. Sometimes I think I should, but more interesting things come up to purchase. Don't tell on me though.
I wish I could give you sizes for all of my layers, but I am an eyeballer. My card base is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", open at the bottom. and from there I just started cutting pieces and trimming until the fit the way I liked.
