both of my middle brothers have birthdays in August, so it's always a fun month to make guy cards... sometimes i can get away with some frillier, "girl" things, but i have to make sure i stick to the right colors: blue and green. my brother Lincoln got his card via mail, because he's been gone all summer. i thought he'd like a reminder of all the ice cream we chowed down on as kids... we went through gallons of ice cream like there was no tomorrow! (oh wait, it's still kind of like that when the whole family get's together... hehe, oh well :D)
i embossed this "elegant" sentiment in light blue and definitely stuck to the whole blue theme... (pom poms, polka dots, ice cream shakes-in blue, ha!) all the stamps aside from the sentiment come from DeNami Design. love their stuff!
i almost forgot to take a picture of this card before it got mailed off, that's why it's in a cellophane wrapper... but i think he'll really like it. oh, almost forgot, this card also qualifies for day 185 at 365 cards for the "feeling blue" day :D
hope you enjoy, and thanks for looking!
