Birthday in B/W...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

I always have a hard time coming up with masculine cards that aren't "cutesy" or over-the-top "guy." My husband's uncle is having a birthday this month and I thought I'd try to make him a card that might suit him. For this card, I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch and decided to stick with a black and white theme.

I love the black and white scheme. I also love how you perfectly pulled a circle from the print to accent the white strip. Gorgeous!
