Shorebirds Swing Card

 Hello Stampers, I'm here to share with you a card for Challenge 184 - Masculine Birthday. Remember to go post you project so that you can be eligible to win some cool SweetStamps product!  I decided to keep things simple for my project because this is a masculine card. Guys just don't like lots of extras! I can say that the photos just don't do the card justice! It's better in real life with all of the vibrant colors!
I used shell buttons and tiny real shells to decorate two corners. The top right corner has a little jumping dolphin and adds a bit of whimsy. The art work was done by stamping Shorebirds 3011 onto glossy card stock and then I sponged on ink and used water based markers to complete the image.
Once the card is opened. You can see the sentiment and a place to write a personal message. I used the SweetStamps sentiment Special  Day 9114. Making fancy fold cards is fun! If you would like to give it a try, visit my blog for more information and a materials list.
Before I leave you today, I would like to say that I had great fun creating projects for you this month! I also wish to thank you for letting me share those with you! I hope you gained some inspiration and good ideas for your projects!
