My good friend Justin had his 30th birthday this month. Unfortunately, things have been a little hectic around here and I did not keep my promise to have his birthday card waiting in the mailbox when he got back from his trip to Vegas to celebrate. Hopefully, he forgives me, but I’m sure I’ll get some good natured ribbing from him.
Justin’s favorite color is green, so I decided to use that. He likes a bit more of a hunter green, but I thought the striped paper was so perfect so I went with the more olive green. I used Jen del Muro’s March Sketch for You to Try. I love playing along with her sketches. I’m also entering this card in the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #104 to make a no kids allowed birthday card.
