 Global design Project #178

Over on the Global Design Project #178 this week they have a sketch challenge! It's a great challenge with loads of scope.

I specifically needed a mans birthday card this week so I pulled out the Amazing Life stamp set as it has a great cake stamp and paired it with some of the Happiness Bloom Papers . The sketch suggests a DSP background with a layer of card for the front but I wanted to show off the papers so I flipped it and put the paper front and centre. I added a scalloped circle of the same DSP turned over behind the white  circle. You can just see the colours peeking out , I popped it up on Dimensionals , scattered a few of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots and tucked some Gold Metallic Thread behind as a finishing touch.

I asked my teenage son what he thought of it and he said, "oh I like that, mens cards usually are one of two things, either cars or golf etc or jokey but I like that. It's more Smart/Casual"! πŸ˜‚I'll take that as a compliment.

I love the Amazing Life stamp set, I've used it lots! There are so many useful stamps for so many celebrations. You can see how I've used it in some other projects here ,  here and here.
