Wanted Happy Birthday

Time flies so fast! We've rolled around to another Tuesday and a new challenge for you at Celebrate The Occasion!! This week the challenge is masculine birthday. The design team has some great projects to inspire you, so please hop over to the blog and check them out!! We'd love to see you link up your project too!


I had some leather fabric I bought at a thrift store and thought it would make a neat western themed card, so I put it to good use!

Supplies used: cardstock - 2 shades of brown; patterned papers - Slim Jim and Slue Foot Sue from Wanted by Cosmo Cricket; die cut from die cut sheet in Wanted by Cosmo Cricket; embossing folder - Croc Texture by The Paper Studio; ink - brown by Inkadinkado;  leather fabric, metal star - my stash; font - Rosewood Std Regular; sewing machine.

So, is this paper or leather? It looks like leather!

It's a great card for a man, and they are so hard to make for, or buy for!

Thanks for sharing!

Blessings,
