Birthday for a friend.

I needed another masculine birthday card and the new Prestwick DP came immediately to mind. I CASEd a card by Cindy at The Creative Closet for this card. I kept her layout and used one of the same stamps--just changed the colors and hardware. I started with a Whisper White card base, added a Going Gray layer that I'd run through my Cuttlebug (I love this thing!!!!) with a new folder, Houndstooth. Then I added the secondary element of Prestwick DP layered on Basic Gray card stock. I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White in Brocade Blue and sponged the edges with Going Gray, rounding one end with a Word Window punch. I attached it to the secondary element with a brushed silver flower brad. The focal element was stamped with the Checkered Lily image from Flourishes' Spring Ephemerals set in Going Gray and Brocade Blue, then layered on Basic Gray card stock. More brushed silver flower brads were added the this element. Light gray double sided satin ribbon was attached with silver hardware. I like it! Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment!

Recipe: Stamps--All Holidays (SU!), Spring Ephemerals (Flourishes); Paper--Whisper White, Brocade Blue, Basic Gray, Going Gray, Prestwick DP (SU!); Ink--Brocade Blue and Going Gray (SU!); Accessories--silver hardware and brads (craft store), Cuttlebug and Houndstooth folder.
