Stampin Up Sail Away Birthday card


I made this card for a couple of challenges. I just started participating in some and I find I really enjoy it.

At Cards for Men the challenge was "anything goes." I'm really excited to be participating in this challenge because I struggle making guy cards. BUT it just so happens I have SU's new Sail Away stamp from the summer mini  that is perfect for masculine cards!

Over at Just for Fun the challenge was to use black, white, and silver. Love that combo.

It worked well to combine the two challenges. I used SU retired DP, black, and white card stock. The sentiment is from Lizzie Ann called Little Bits. I tied some SU silver cord around the bottom with a silver button I found in my button jar.

This was so much fun!
