Oh Mason!

This is a birthday card I sent to my nephew's son (I guess that makes him my great nephew??) in May. I absolutely loved this paper which had a shaped distressed edge which I used along the side and bottom (the card really isn't mis-shapen...again, my poor photography skills at work). I can't remember who makes the friend (who shall remain nameless) and I SPLIT this one sheet of paper! Because we both loved it so. And, yes, the store had more than one sheet where we each could buy one full sheet. But, that's what we do. We split and share. Anyway, the manufacturers' name was not on my half. I added a few punched out navy stars(SU!) that I popped up on the existing paper's stars, dug around in my stash and found some corrugated navy that matched. Used a couple of SU! punches for the sentiment and an EK Success paper shaper for the small folk stars. I believe the sentiment is Amuse and I used a bit of scattered straw distress ink to age the sentiment oval and the punched star...the color matched the distressed yellow in the paper perfectly! I struggle with any masculine cards, but I was quite pleased with this one.
Thanks for peeking!
