HB Ronald

My nephew's birthday is coming up soon. I made this card for him, but I was worried that he may not like it. I asked my DH and he told me that 16 year old boys don't really care what a card looks like. I'm trying to wrap my head around that. Anyway, I hope he likes it.

HB Uncle Andy

This card is for my uncle’s birthday. He & his family moved out west when I was younger. I always thought about him when I saw a horse. I guess because his son used to ride. I don’t have any horse stamps, so I settled for the great outdoors.
Deets: I inked the tree stamp with Chocolate Chip and then colored the tips with Old Olive. I crimped the paper and rubbed it in the Chocolate Chip ink. Then I stippled the Old Olive around. I also stippled the sky with the Ballet Blue and rubbed the edges in the ink pad.
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Birthday Greetings
Paper: Ballet Blue, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Inks: Ballet Blue, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Accessories: Crimper, Stipple brush
