I know it is not fall yet, but the morning seems cool enough that the leaves will be changing soon. I was in need of another masculine Birthday card and today's sketch was the perfect avenue to jump start this card. the leaves were first stamped in the Cajun Craze and then outlined with the Early Espresso marker before putting it to the paper. I also sponged around the edges after I cut them out. They are adhered with glue dots. The designer paper had the trim all the way around the 12 x12 paper.Once I cut it down it only had the edge on 2 sides. So I used the marker to doodle some lines an did some more sponging to blend it all in. I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to do the double lines around the edge on the card base. It needed something simple and it did the trick. The Happy Birthday was in the middle of the Cake on the stamp. I just used the marker to ink what I wanted to use.
