Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge

I needed a masculine Birthday card and Our Creative Corner is doing a sketch challenge, I meant to post this yesterday when I finished the card but forgot, you have until tonight to participate.  You can find the challenge Here on their blog .

I tried to keep it kind of monochromatic, that was the extra challenge you can do.

Stampers Annoymous -- Tim Holtz -- Birdsong stamp
Sizzix -- Tim Holtz -- Woodgrain Embossing folder, put distress ink on the folder
Spellbinders Classic Rectangles Lg and Labels Trio dies
Hero Arts All Occasion Messages sentiment stamp
Spare parts Square brads (on dark brown strips, kind of hard to see)

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and letting me know what you think of my creation,
Hope you have a Wonderful weekend,

Connie, this is stunning! I am such a huge fan of wood grain on cards and I just love that you picked this texture for your card. It's so perfectly fitting for the masculine theme and what you've done to the sketch..wonderful!
A very well crafted Birthday card indeed. :)

Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us at Our Creative Corner. Best of luck and we'd love to have you visit again next week!

Hi Connie that is very pretty, I love the birds and news print. Wow I really have forgotten if it had news print or not, wish I could see your post. Well in any event it's lovely and vintage looking. Happy Fall! Hugs
