Happy, Happy Birthday!

It's Henry again...I haven't used him in a while, so I thought I'd dust him off...lol. I followed the fab sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches to make a boys card. The paper is from the 'Arhaic' pad by BasicGrey, the buttons are from my stash, and the sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts (I stamped it a couple of times, then separated the words, to give the three rectangles on the sketch). I distressed all of the edges with my distressing tool and ink...which fits in nicely with the 'Distressing' theme of this week's Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge. I'm also going to enter this card for the Guest Designer Call, that Katharina is hosting for Whiff of Joy Stamps.


It's my first blogoversary tomorrow...and I'm just putting the finishing touches to some celebratory candy...so watch this space! lol
