Birthday Boy!

Today I am playing in the challenge at The Friday Mashup!  The challenge is to create a project with the Triple-Time Stamping Technique using Summer Starfruit, Pacific Point and Crumb Cake.  I wanted to use some of my new goodies!
I wasn't exactly sure where I was going with this card!  I started by cutting out all of the circles. I thought the colors could be pretty masculine so I used Six-Sided Sampler, thinking it would look masculine.  After I assembled it I realized that it looks like a soccer ball!  That totally happened by accident! :) I didn't want to take too much away from it so I just embossed the back panel and added the birthday sentiment. I would say that I am going to hold this aside for Brett's August birthday, but soccer is the ONE sport that he hates! lol

Stamp Sets: Banner Greetings, Six-Sided Sampler
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Pacific Point, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pacific Point, Summer Starfruit
Tools: Alphabet Press Embossing Folder, Circle Framelits
Accessories: Dimensionals


  1. The circles are so creative, I love it! And if it helps any, I did NOT think soccer ball when I saw the card :)
