Hardwood Background Birthday - Friday Mashup #141

Happy New Year everyone.  We've had quite the New Year weather wise.  It really started before Christmas when we were hit by a huge ice storm which crippled the City of Toronto with most of the city being without power for over a week. This combined by frigid temperatures in the minus 40 degrees C (with the wind chill) made for a cool holiday season.  Since then we have had a few relatively mild days but mainly cold, cold temperatures - and snow almost everyday.  My poor son is having a hard time keeping the driveway clear.  We have to be happy just keeping the mouth of the driveway clear of snowplough mounds. Today the thermometer is minus 21 without the wind chill - not a day to be going outside.  Apparently exposed skin will freeze in under 5 minutes.

For this week's challenge with the Friday Mashup here I chose not to do a theme related to time as I did not have any stamps for that theme.  Instead I chose to make a masculine birthday card.


I used a combination of new Occasions catalogue items and items available in the Annual catalogue. 
The base card is Soft Suede layered with a piece of Whisper White which has been stamped with the Hardwood background stamp.  On this I applied a piece of Retro Fresh designer paper.

The image is stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Soft suede ink, with the sentiment stamped directly underneath it.  This panel is sponged with Soft Suede ink and then matted with a piece of Soft Suede card stock.  A banner of Tangerine Tango cardstock is attached at the bottom of the panel and this panel attached to the card using dimensionals.
Some Gold Baker's twine was wound around the card at its left side.

Stamps: Hardwood, Walk in the Wild, Petite Pairs, Another Great Year
Inks: Soft Suede
Paper: Soft Suede, Whisper White, Retro Fresh Designer Paper, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Gold Baker's twine
