365 Cards--Day #284 DIY

Been off the 365 challenges the last few days--Holiday "busy"ness!  But tomorrow is my hubby's birthday (it's mine too actually--yes we share the same birthday), and I had to make him a card.  I figured, I may as well link it to a challenge.  Day 284 Challenge is a DIY--"Design your own sketch and create a card based on that sketch."

So here is my sketch--rough one indeed:

And here's my card:

The large flourish stamp I used and embossed was from a new stamp set I picked at a Liquidation store for only $1.88 (can you believe that?!).  It's Kimberly Poloson Flourishes set by FISKARS.  Sentiment is a sticker from an old set I had.  Here's a closer look:

I'm not completely thrilled with the results--sort of rushed to make it today; kiddos kept me rather busy.  I do love the stamp set though, and can't wait to play with it some more.

Thanks 4 your time!
