Bending the Rules

Hi & Happy Friday ๐Ÿ™‚ ,

I try hard not to embellish male cards with flowers, but for this male birthday card I made an exception. Since it’s not such a girly girly flower I thought it’d be ok to bend my own rules a little bit. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The flower has been made of regular newspaper, which I distressed, with Whiff of Joy’s Nested Flowers III’ dies according to Katharina Frei’s tutorial.

I followed this week’s sketch from Sketchy Colors and used the color scheme from The Shabby Tea Room (see pics).

Sketchy Colors – #84 Sketch
The Shabby Tea Room – #79 “Boys will be Boys”
Creative Inspirations – #129 Anything Goes
Crop Stop – #37 Button
Fairy Fun -#61 Male
