Birthday Boy II

Hello everyone,

Sorry to have missed posting yesterday. I'm still on holidays and in the throes of renovations and painting. I can't wait to be finished and I'm fast reaching the point where it would be more relaxing to be at work.

Tomorrow is my godson's 16th birthday. How time flies. He is a fairly decent rugby player and his favourite team is the Australian Wallabies. We found him the real deal, gold and green rugby jersey so I figured a green and gold card was just the ticket.

The sketch is based on Sunday's Card Positioning Systems sketch. The card base is from DCWV assorted box of textured cards. The top layer is Stampin' Up Patterns Pack II. The sentiment is Sweet 'n Sassy Birthday Greetings.

There seemed little point is going hog-wild for a sixteen year old boys birthday card. It isn't something he'll treasure forever - that will be the jersey - so I deliberately kept this pretty basic and very simple. He'll get the colours but beyond that, meh. All that being said, I quite like this card and will certainly keep this sketch in mind when I need something fast.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
