Seize The Birthday #8 - Nature Silhouettes

  Here's my card for this week's Seize The Birthday #8 to make a masculine BD card using the sketch.

My card is 4-1/2 x 6" and the base is SU Whisper White.  Next is a mat of SU Marina Mist and DSP from SU Letter to Santa (retired). As you can see it has papers that can be used for more than Christmas.  I stamped the tree/grass from SU Nature Silhouettes in SU Early Espresso ink and then stamped the deer.  The image panel is cut with the Top Note Die from SU, trimmed along the perforation and then matted on a Marina Mist Top Note.  The Happy Birthday is from SU Tagtastic.  I inked the sentiment with an Early Espresso marker and huffed on it before stamping it.  The stamp is actually a tag with a bear on a bicycle, but I just wanted the sentiment.   The corner cut is from an older Provo Craft die.

Thanks for stopping by.  Comments are greatly appreciated.
