Hiya, crafty peeps! Yep, the time is flying by – welcome to April! Do you have any April Fool’s jokes planned for anyone, lol?! A new challenge is live this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #24 – Anything Goes + Black & White Plus One Color. Remember, all of our challenges are ‘anything goes’ and we offer a different technique twist each month to inspire you, but the twist is not required to play! So come on over and join us!
I had already created a birthday card for the hubs several months ago but I’m thinking I may give him this one instead. His birthday is in June so I have a couple months to decide which one to give him. All stamps used on the front of this card are from Blank Page Muse. I used green with the black and white, and layered all the panels on black. I cut the sentiment with a dotted circles die and layered it on black foam.
I kept the inside relatively simple with stamped sentiments from Sparkle N Sprinkle on a layered panel.
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up thick and regular Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock, Crafter’s Companion Just For Men 6×6 paper
Stamps: Blank Page Muse Diamonds Background stamp, Classic Car Front End View stamp, and A Real Classic sentiment stamp; Sparkle N Sprinkle Woody stamp set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Bamboo Leaves ink
Dies/Punches: Sizzix Dotted Circles die

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s masculine birthday card and will link up with us this month! We’d love to see your ‘anything goes’ project – or play the twist if you’d like! Black and white with one color isn’t too hard to pull off! Thanks for stopping by today and we’ll see you again real soon! ;)
