simple birthday

Today I have a super duper quick birthday card for you - its suitable for a guy too which is great! 

Birthday - Stripes, Dashes and Curls

Stamp Set: Happiest Birthday Wishes
Ink: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Wild Wasabi
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Extras: Sponge

I laid down strips of cardstock in the background and then filled in the gaps with dashed stitching lines and curls using the markers. Then I used the markers to colour in the birthday sentiment on a scrap. I sponged the edges with Not Quite Navy ink to make it pop! And that's it! 

Happy Crafting,

Amanda xo
