Belated Birthday!

Oops! I forgot one of my friend's birthday! His was one of the first ones of the month and somehow I skipped it! So I hope this card will make up for it!


I created this card using the Verve Diva, Andrea Ewen's sketch that she designed for the Viva La Verve June 2011 Week Two  Sketch Challenge:

I needed to make a masculine card, so I chose the papers from We R Memory Keepers-MVP collection. I think this sketch and these colors look great together! 
Stamps of Life has a great stamp set for late birthdays called late4Bday
The scallops were made by punching 1" circles. This is how Julee Tilman of MojoMonday did hers.
I thought that was a great idea! I wrapped some tan seam binding about 4 times around the panel. I then tied a bow with some twine and added the little flower. That is a brown button brad in the center of the flower. I put 2 orange rhinestones in the top 2 corners to balance the orange flower.

Thanks again for stopping by!  I really enjoy your comments!
