happy, happy birthday...


We celebrated Darin's birthday on Monday....



...masculine cards are a challenge for me.

So, when I saw THIS awesome card by Gayatri, I was inspired.

Navy blue is Darin's FAV color so I knew I wanted to use this MME collection {Thanks Janice!}.  

Although you can't tell by the photo, the base is frosted acetate.

Still lovin' those wooden discs...perfect for a SRM birthday sentiment.

We're half way through the work week peeps!

  26. Frosted acetate?!? Never heard of that, but it sounds like something I really need!! : ) Perfect mix of masculine patterns here, even the mustard polka-dot looks masculine with the other two, and keeps the card "happy." Love it!
