Birthday Wishes..

This is my second post. Scroll down for my FYI challenge post.



Hello! Thanks for stopping in. I've got a quick post today. I actually have things on my agenda today - will miracles never cease? LOL. 


I have a card today for this week's Colour Q! The colors intimidated me at first, and then an idea for a birthday card for a male co-worker came to mind and I was all set. Here are this week's colors:




Just perfect for a masculine card, no? Well, here is what I created:





I really really like that Papertrey Men of Life set. I think even for guys who may not sail, it's still a great set for a man don't you think?




I'm also putting this into Papertrey Make it Monday for this week which was to use the rock n roll technique. Here is a close up of the sails where I used the technique:



I really like using it, though it was a tad more difficult on a non-round image..lol. 
Well, that's all I have for today. Have a great day!

This is a great card, those little anchors on the circle really caught my eye. Such a little touch, but I loved it. Great job and you are right about the sailboats.
