Happy Birthday Joseph!



Tomorrow is my husband's birthday.  It's a BIG one.  He's a low-key kind of guy in terms of being in the spotlight, so I did not add bells, whistles or numbers on this card!  I just got this wonderful Friendly Flags set from Hero Arts, and when I saw the CAS-ual Friday sketch challenge this week, I knew that I would put the two together along with Dictionary Greeting.  I think it is crisp and fun - perfect for this occasion!

Supplies used:
Paper~PTI white, SU Black, Neenah Solar White.
Stamps~Hero Arts Friendly Flags & Dictionary Greeting, PTI Think Big Favorites #12.
Ink~Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaFine Onyx Black.
Accessories~Copics, Nestabilities, Dimensionals, The Twinery black twine.

Thanks so much for coming by today!

I love your banner, Stephanie, especially how you've strung it on the twine and hung it over the text. My hubby just celebrated his 40th last week. Unfortunately our oldest has her birthday the day before, so her celebrations tend to overshadow his. Poor guy. :) Ann Y.
