A Masculine Birthday Wish - LIM#7

This will have to be my final entry for the this weeks Less is More challenge. My mom is here for a visit and I've been sneaking into the craft room for three days to make cards whenever she gets distracted. Not a very good way for me to spend time with her. I'll make it up to her over the rest of the week. :)

Anyway, this lovely card came together so nicely and quite by accident. I was tossing about in the scrap bin and put the center oval to the side to see if I could make use of it. A bit later I tossed the die-cut to the side (where it landed on top of the oval) and thats when I saw that the two together looked rather nice. The center oval is a scrap of some unknown DP (wish I did know because it is lovely); the black die-cut is by Memory Box. The sentiment panel was cut from a piece of scrap using Old Olive along the inner edge before I removed the Spellbinder die to give it some depth. The sentiment is from SU! called Sincere Salutations and it is popped up on dimensionals.

So I guess since this one is scraps, I can submit this for Jules Sunday Snippets as well.

I've decided this is a nice masculine card, good colors and not too fancy but with just enough flare to keep it from being too plain.

So good luck to Mandi and Chrissie; I'll try and check back in before I head out tonight and hopefully the 1000 mark will be met.
