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!

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!

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!!!

Wendy said...

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! :)

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