Friends with Flair - Birthday Wishes

It's Friday and that means Friends with Flair time over at Unity.  Make sure you stop by the Unity blog and blog hop to all the participants blogs because you could win some free stamps! You get a lot of Unity goodness for just spreading a little love!


Here is my "more Masculine" Birthday card that I have to share with you today! I don't have nearly enough in my stash of cards.
The stamps I used are Unity's Love in the Air.  The colors for the ballon were pulled from some papers I have had in my stash for awhile.  I stamped the hot air balloon in Bravo Burgundy and used copics Blue Violet and Lionet Gold to shade.  To make this a little more masculine/grungy I distressed all the edges.  
I found a new sketch challenge at The Sketchy Challenges to seek some inspiration.
Hope you have a fantastic Friday!
~Tammy~

Hi Tammy,
I totally can relate to what you mean by not having enough masculine cards...but they're so hard to make, I think. :-) This is a great one though! Perfect image for a male. Thanks for joining us "the Sketchy Challenges.
