Happy Birthday 2 you

Another Centre Step Card (can't seem to get enough of them at the moment!) - but a masculine one this time!!  I used the gorgeous Sears n Son papers and teamed them with the awesome small hot air balloon from Twiddleybitz and 'accessories' from My2Angels...

And of course - a close up for you of the gorgeous items from Tracy at
  • This time I started with a pre-cut and folded card from Twiddleybitz!!
  • Scored and cut the card
  • Cut the patterned paper
  • I inked all card, and paper edges and the 2, y, o, u, with Black Stazon ink
  • Stamped "Happy birthday" on the bottom horizontal panel - also in Black Stazon ink
  • Used alcohol ink to colour the white bow and flowers
  • Used a number of coloured distress stains to colour the hot air balloon
  • Added the gold paint around the edge of the balloon and y, o, u
  • Adhered all paper to card
  • Added the compass charm and bow
  • Adhered the hot air balloon, 2, and y, o, u
  • Adhered the head of the brad and the 'love' charm
  • Lastly I fed the stalks of the roses through the centre of the brass flower and adhered all to card
Those Paper measurements again (cm):
1 x 2.5x14
2 x 2.5x6.5
1 x 7x8

I hope you like my take on Masculine LOL!!  I needed a card for that wonderful man in my life and didn't think pastels, flowers, and birds would cut it!!
