Masculine birthday - Pursuit of Happiness

I always think masculine cards are the most challenging to make, but this card was an exception. It came together really quickly & the recipient (& his card making partner) seemed to like it. Double yay!
I really like using the torn frame technique for masculine cards, as it gives lots of texture & is great for making a large sentiment into a focal point. The great quote stamp (from Pursuit of Happiness) was perfect for the recipient too. Some messy collage stamping with the Clockworks stamp set on bravo burgundy Patterns DSP & some twine finished it off. Done in 15 mins max (shhhhhh!).
Looking now, most of what's on this card is retiring (except for the Clockworks stamp set). Just when I was getting the hand of bravo burgundy too. You can see some more torn frame cards here.

Thanks heaps to anyone who's still following me despite my blogging break. If you'd like to see some more, leave me some comment love to say hi. Back soonish!
Inky wishes, Di
