Birthday Sketch for Him

I've had a ball this Easter Sunday, a whole day to craft and spend time with the family too.  I've made several cards that I can't show you yet, as they are future DT projects but here's one I can.  I have made it for the challenge at Seize The Birthday. If you haven't found this blog yet, check it out.

It's a sketch challenge, one week for a feminine card and the same sketch the next week for masculine cards and always for birthdays.  What a great idea to build up your stash of cards.  This week it's a male card and I really want to make more of these, I never have a male card when I need one.

I've made it very CAS, with a cafe au lait type colour scheme.  The large sentiment is one of my favs for cards for men/boys and I've stamped it in Chocolate Chip. I've added the dog, stamped and embossed in Crumb Cake, and popped up on dimensionals - here's a close up so you can see better

I've added a Choc Chip lacey scallop border and will also enter my card in this week's Less Is More, where the challenge is to incorporate scallops into your CAS project.
