Not-so-usual birthday card

I recently made a photo card for my colleague to capture memories of his last birthday celebration with us at work.

This time I wanted to experiment with spraying ink and kraft paper. And here is what I came up with for the card cover.

I first stamped  photo set  stamps and sprayed it randomly to create a background. Later I folded a net cloth, to create a circle. After which I cut a kraft paper to create a see through pattern and stuck a “happy birthday” quote on it. From an old chocolate box I cut out triangles to make flowers and from the same box also cut out a border consisting mini triangles.
Since this needed to be masculine, this was the first time I remember using this combination of colors, but there is always a first time!!!  I usually use bright or summer colors.





And this is how it finally looked!
