CCMC443 Bradley's Birthday

Hi everyone!  Hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed the Super Bowl, if that's your thing!  I have a masculine birthday card for you today, using the Create with Connie and Mary sketch:

and my favorite guy set, Guy Greetings!  My nephew's birthday is coming up this week, and he goes to the gym faithfully, so I thought this "vintage" bodybuilder would make him smile:

I used some retired DSP (lost the cover, can't remember the name) from a couple of years back, and my circular elements were stamped with images from Timeless Textures.  I lightly watercolored his tights and belt:

I think this is actually the first time I've inked up this handsome fellow!  Enjoy your day!

A YUMMY dessert after an afternoon of bowling!

  1. I've not inked that guy up either, LeAnne, but he looks awesome on your card! Love those papers with the spattering added. This is a wonderful masculine card!

  2. Great masculine card. Love the papers together and how you added light touches of color the the guy.

  3. Oh you need to keep this guy front and center, LeAnne... how awesome is he??!! LOve the grey, mad about the plaid, and all this glorious gray!!!

  4. Awesome masculine card, LeAnne! I have never used this particular image either from that stamp set as it reminds me of a circus character! LOL I do love the sketch and those masculine papers you used! I think the paper is Adventure Bound DSP from 2 years ago. It was one of my favorites! Cassidy looked like she was ready to tear into that dessert...looks yummy! TFS and enjoy the sunshine today! :)

  5. Love it! Thanks for playing the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge this week!

  6. How perfect is this for your nephew, he'll love it! I like the plaid and your cool design. Cassidy's dessert looks scrumptious!!

  7. Oh he's perfect for this card. Love it! Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary this week

  8. A great guy card - love those papers too! - not sure whether I like the dessert or the card better today though, lucky Cassidy!!

  9. I have NEVER inked up that man either! But I love what you did! Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!
