Today's Daily SPS Inspiration with June - card

 Hello!  This is June Houck with a scrappy birthday card.  I still have bits from this My Mind's Eye collection called Indie Chic "Nutmeg."  It is my go-to collection for masculine cards with these wonderful patterns in shades of blue.

  My card evolved from a small scrap of the blue tone-on-tone circles paper.  I rounded opposite corners and inked the edges.  Then I coordinated three other patterns in blue.  Even the grey-ish banner is scrap piece from in the collection.  I stamped the sentiment and added twine.  Tip:  to keep my twine from unraveling, I dab a tiny dot of glossy accents on the ends.   They end up looking a little bit like shoe laces.

papers:  My Mind's Eye Indie Chic "Nutmeg" Boy CheckerFamily Laurel Burst (both sides), and Memories Tapestry; XPEDX navy linen card stock
sentiment:  My Pink Stamper "Birthday Doodles" stamp set
twine:  The Twinery charcoal

Happy Tuesday!  June

Beautiful card! The pattern paper is awesome and perfect for a masculine card which by the way, you nailed it! I love the distressing and the twine is such a great touch!
Great tip on the twine..I will definitely go dig into my twine to do that!
