This sketch has so many possibilities! When I saw it I was almost immediately reminded of a card I made a while back. I decided to tweak a few things and make a new updated version of it. I really like how it turned out!
The striped DSP is from the retired Urban Garden and the herringbone DSP is from Urban Oasis. Both of these papers allowed me to dig out my beloved Kiwi Kiss cardstock. I used Inspired by Nature to stamp some grass in Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. Then I added the sentiment from Upsy Daisy stamped in Basic Gray.
My nephew's birthday was last week and since he's away at college we've decided to celebrate his birthday on Thanksgiving when the whole family will be together. I thought this sketch and these colors would be perfect for a masculine card and I intended to keep this one simple. Then I found myself powerless to resist adding the button, even though I know the unspoken rules of masculine cards state that things like buttons and flowers are not allowed! Hopefully, he'll forgive that little bit of embellishment!
