The challenge over at Addicted to CAS is "stripes" and this month at A Blog Named Hero the theme challenge is "masculine" - so here is a combo of the two.
For the birthday sentiment I layered washi tape in stripes on a piece of cardstock and then die cut. The "happy" is from a very old Hero Arts set and it was stamped in black and clear embossed. The gray stripe background was embossed with a stencil by Heidi Swapp. Popped the gray piece up with foam tape on the white card base. Added a few enamel dots and done.
There is still time to enter both challenges - but they are ending soon.
Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.
