I never have enough birthday cards and I definitely don't ever have enough masculine birthday cards.  I hope I can solve this problem.

FTHS Birthday Candle Birdbrain is what I chose to use for the FTHS Sketch Challenge #102 with a Twist.  I chose only to follow the sketch this time around. (From the Heart Stamps)

A2, copics, homemade enamel dot, puff paint for candle drip, glitter on sweat drops, Lil Inker Stitched Circle die, shadow die cut in Silhouette Studio

  2. I find guy cards hard to do, too. I'm struggling to make one for my husband, and his birthday is today! I guess the card will be late, because I'm not satisfied with it.

    I love yours! That image is adorable and the sketch is nice and balanced.

    Perfect job on the sketch. I LOVE your sentiment placement to go along with the sketch and the teeny bit of candle sticking off the circle.

    My stitching took about 1/2 hours including 'pricking' out..and it's something I can do whilst watching TV!
    but, have to say I have made a few of these baubles in different colours and it becomes easier as time goes on lol.

  7. ADORABLE card! LOVE the image and the puff paint on the wax drippings (Never would have thought to use it for that!). GREAT papers and LOVE how you did the sentiment!

    Fabulous take on the sketch. Love this fun image and how you colored him. The background papers carry out the color scheme perfectly.

    I too am always needing "Guy" cards. This one is fun and perfect. Love the sentiment also and the fun papers!
