Happy Birthday!

I wanted to do something a little different for a change, so I used my Polychromo colored pencils on Kraft cardstock.

Birthday Cards-571

For this card, I used Stamping Bella’s Manly Chicks to make this masculine card.

I made this card a one layer card, something I had never done.  I kept it simple, which seems to be my style.

I had seen Julia Altemann use a white gel pen around the image that she had colored on Kraft cardstock.  I thought I would give it a try.  I liked the outcome.
