I wanted a simple masculine look for this card, nothing fussy, so I used a 6x6 kraft base and kraft paper for matting. The blue patterned paper is from Dovecraft's Back To Basics Blue Shades pack (great for masculine cards) and I've die-cut the numbers and stars and the greeting was done in Word using my favourite Copperplate Gothic font.
I'm entering this into the 'anything goes' challenges at:
Creative Moments Challenge #100
Thanks for looking!
