What do you get when you combine a sketch challenge and an impending birthday? The answer is: this card. For Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop this week, I decided to use the August Kit of the Month Sketch Challenge HERE to make an early easel birthday card for my brother-in-law. I chose the June '11 KOTM (all smiles) because of the cute cupcake image and sentiment. But I struggled to keep it masculine, foregoing a pink candle for a white one (it's a real one!) and rather than frilly ribbon, I used rough twine. Don't you just love the papers? The definition comes from Tim Holtz' Idea-ology Paper Stash pad and the plaid is from The Lodge Stack by DCWV.
Take a tour through the blog hop HERE and shop for Unity goodies HERE.
On a serious note, to everyone in the path of Hurricane Irene, stay safe! I'm hoping that where we are won't be heavily affected but I bought power outage provisions just in case. Send good karma to the east coast, please. *smile*
