Birthday Boy !

This here is my first attempt at the easel card ! Yeah, can you believe it ?? Well, since my mojo is on a real high, I wanted to experiment alittle beyond my range and frankly, as most crafters, we only realize our boundaries are limitless when we try to push it a little further .. we can stretch it with motivation and thats exactly what I am, right now ~ Motivated !

Making this card was not only fun, but I realized something strange.  Being someone who feels more comfortable with symmetry, square cards provide alot of channels for me. I felt more easy with dividing in halfs and finding center focals !  My general style of card layouts are rectangular landscapes. So, yeah, I think you really will be seeing more of these here on !

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I rediscovered the corner punches (and perhaps got carried away a wee bit !!) Ofcourse I havent used any embellishments becoz, I wanted the paper colors, punches and the stamp, which is a digital stamp,  to be the focal point. The card is supported by an oval sentiment in the inside of the it.    I am pleased with the outcome and I feel, I have done a good job.

One young lad is going to be very happy for his birthday especially if he likes to ski !   🙂

And now, its your verdict time guys !
