30 Is The New 20

Hey there!  How was everyone's week?  I'm sure I'm not the only one looking forward to the weekend!  I have to squeeze in a lot of crafting time between now and Sunday, which is Father's Day here.  I'm headed to the craft desk now as a matter of fact, but first I wanted to share a card I made for my co-worker's birthday.  He turned 30 and I was like "nu-uh, no way!" He looks a decade younger (or maybe my perception is off because I'm a decade older)!  Anyhoo...

I just loved J-Cool from Kenny K for this occasion!  I colored him with Copics and added glaze to his glasses.  He is cut and matted with Classic Ovals Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  I also used my Classic Circles Nestabilities and embossed it with a brick textured folder.  The city scape (Skyline Border) and numbers (By the Numbers) are both Die-namics dies from My Favorite Things.  The corner is Sizzlits Photo Corners 2 die.  Papers are Basic Grey - Wanderer.  The sketch I've used is Sketchy Colors (#214).

I usually struggle a bit with masculine cards but this one came together pretty easily!  And I actually like how it turned out!  Check back over the weekend to see what other crafty shenanigans I've been up to!

Markers used: Copics (E04, E15, E17, E19, E25, E27, E31, E33, E34, E70, E74, E79, R89, N0, N2, N4, BG70, BG72, Y28, YG61, YG67).
