Birthday idea: RetroSketch/ TimelessTuesday card

Hi there
Hope you are well and looking forward to the Easter break – it’s a good reason to be joyful as it’s a long weekend off work ;)

Here’s a card I made for a couple of new challenges this week… firstly over at RetroSketches #5, and also for Timeless Tuesday #163 at Flourishes, for a birthday card.

I think it could be nice for a masculine birthday:

birthday card challenge Retro Sketches rs5 Timeless Tuesday Flourishes FTTC 163 The background paper is new Echo Park ‘This & That – Charming’ as is the yellow stripe (I think) – from the same collection 6×6 pad. The circles are diecut with Nesties Scallop Circle and accented with gel pen.

The stamped gardening image is from the Flourishes ‘From the Garden’ set, coloured with my watercolour pencils, and the birthday greeting is from Papertrey Ink ‘Up, Up & Away’ set, with a bit of masking.

That’s all for now – see you soon – I’ll be sharing my Easter cards tomorrow ready for the weekend, as all the recipients (who are also readers of my bloggo!) will have received them,
Hugs, Rx
