FTTC163 - Happy Birthday!

The Timeless Tuesday Challenge over at Flourishes this week is to make a Birthday card!  So, I decided to go the masculine route since I have 4 brothers-in-law (and no brothers!).   I stamped the medallion in Rich Cocoa ink so I could color it with my Copics. 

I cut it out by hand and glued it to a piece of brown cardstock.  Then I cut the 8 sides so it would make a nice mat for the medallion.  I popped the sentiment and added a copper dragonfly brad for fun.
Finished card is 5.25 square.
  • Stamps: Flourishes - Medallion Motif, Tag Lines
  • Ink: Memento - Rich Cocoa
  • Paper: Neenah Natural White, brown cardstock, misc DSP
  • Other: Copics, Spellbinders Classic Circle dies, brad
