Rock On! Birthday card for my nephew!

I can't believe that tomorrow is my nephew's birthday! He was only about 2 weeks old at my wedding, and is now turning 11!!! Which means in 2 short weeks, I will be celebrating my 11th anniversary. My, how the time flies! Anyway, as usual, boy/guy cards are a bit of a challenge for me, but I think I pulled one off! I am also entering this in the color challenge at More Than Favors - Wacky Wednesday's to use green, yellow, and purple, as well as the Cricut Circle Blog's weekly challenge - this week to make a guy card incorporating at least 3 different elements. I chose twine, distressed edges, buttons, and stars - so I guess I did 4 things!

I used Birthday Bash for the card base, star, and sentiment. Ran the star through the Cuttlebug, added doodling, inking, and used my Tim Holtz distress tool on the edge of the star. Also put a little Glossy Accents on the sentiment, and finished with a little Baker's Twine and a button.


  1. Great Card! love your colors! L became a follower hope you can stop by and see me too!

  2. I'm completely in love with the colors and textures on this card! AWESOME!

  3. Love the embossing and the twine. This turned out great!
