Happy Birthday!

Hi Friends!

TGIF!  I hope you all are doing well!  I thought I'd pop in on this Friday afternoon to show you what I worked on last night.  I won a card making class from Audrey Pettit developed by PageMapsU.  They give you detailed instructions on cards by many talented designers.  So, the above card I made, which is similar to Audrey's.  And, here is Audrey's fabulous card...

I think this card would be great for a masculine birthday.  It would work for feminine or masculine, I think.  But, since it's made I'm going to use it for a masculine birthday.  For I know if you are like me, masculine cards can be a struggle.  Anyways, I had fun making this card.  All the instructions and great details from many wonderful awesome designers.  It's week two of this card making class and I'm already behind!:-)  But, it was tons of fun!  I just love Audrey's style with all the detail and layering!  Thanks so much, Audrey, for the inspiration!  And, thank you for dropping by and visiting here today!  Take care and have a great weekend!

  1. Congratulations on winning some class time...sounds like fun. You did a fabulous job on your card. Masculine or feminine is right, for sure.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend and some warm weather.

  2. Awesome card, Maria! I'm needed some inspiration for a masculine card for a pre-teen, so you and Audrey have given me some ideas.

  3. Wonderful layers! Way to go using all those great patterned papers. You are right, there are never enough masculine cards in my stash that this would definitely go into that pile (or maybe start the pile).

  5. I definitely don't have enough masculine cards! I love the layers you added!
