Fringed Birthday Card

I decided to go back and finish making this card that I had started awhile ago as it has been sitting on my desk.  As I have mentioned before - Brenda Quintana - does a CASING Tuesday on her facebook and I thought this card would be a great card to make for some men's birthdays coming up.  Check out her VIDEO for instructions.  I never have all the supplies but manage to substitute what I don't have.

I didn't have some of the colors she used.  I used Tempting Turquoise for my blue, and actually found some cute DSP in a pad that was similar to the DSP she used.  I think this little pad I found was one of the first pads I purchased when I first started scrapbooking.

I didn't have the stamp set she used but thought the SU Birthday Pairing worked fine.  I also used the new Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments for my balloons instead of CS.

I liked how it turned out.  I used the Better Together for the inside sentiment.

I always find it hard to make masculine cards for men, but I think these will work out great.
Everyone is getting ready for a long holiday weekend.  We hope you have a wonderful time with your families and friends!

Thanks for stopping by,

These are great birthday cards for either gender and that's some of the best kind to have on hand! Love the colors, papers, and texture. Our son is here for the holiday weekend and we have a few plans. I'm enjoying a quiet morning for the time being. Have a good weekend!

Your card turned out fabulous. I too have a hard time making cards for men. Love that little balloon.
