Today I have for you a posting from The Stamping Chef. I have used Val N'Tine to create a nice birthday card that would work great for a masculine card.
This card reminds me very much of a young Marilyn Monroe singing while sitting upon her piano. You can find this Val N'Tine digi by going to the Stamping Chef Store here, or clicking on her name.
I colored my digi using Crayola Colored Pencils and blended with Gamsol. Yes, I know she is not perfect, but I still think she turned out pretty good. I added a chocolate brown grosgrain ribbon, and three various colors of brown buttons. I completed the card with a happy birthday sentiment. Thou, after I took the pic, I realized I used the wrong red piece so I am going to carefully disassemble and fix the sentiment.
Make sure that you also take the time to visit the blogs of my Design Team sisters. They have some wonderful designs to share with you as well.
