Masculine Birthday

It's been a busy day so this might be a really quick post. Got our new car after work and even before we drove out of the parking lot some older gentleman backed into our brand new car. My husband was not happy. The dealer will fix it on Monday when I take it in for some other things. But what a way to start out with a new car. Then we took out son-in-law out for a birthday dinner. And then some shopping for my daughter for some maternity clothes. So I made this card last night for a co-workers birthday this weekend.

I used the sketch at i {heart} card sketches with a twist #119. The twist was the spotlight technique but I didn't use that. The image is Lighthouse at From the Heart Stamps. I colored the image with Copics and Bic markers. I embossing folder I used was Spots & Dots. I wanted seashells but didn't have one so I thought these looked like bubbles. I heat embossed a Hero Arts Happy Birthday on the MFT Fishtail Flags die cut at both ends. The sketch looks like this:

I am entering these challenges:
Well, it's about my bedtime and I have a few more things to do and I want to make them quick. Have an awesome Friday. It's almost the weekend! Yippee! Thanks for stopping by.

You did a great job with this sketch! I love the deeper blues over the lighter embossed blue panel...really make the image "pop".
I'm glad you could play along with us at From the Heart Stamps.

Bummer on the new car dent. That is so unpleasant, when you have a shiny lovely new vehicle. Your lighthouse looks so perfect against the circles of that embossed background. Made me think of all the water ripples that somebody in the top of the lighthouse would be looking down to see. TFS & Hugs
