Happy Birthday Wyatt

Boy do I struggle with the guys. But I have to say, this one just kinda came to me. I think it's easier to make cards for younger boys cuz it can still be cute. It's the manly/masculine aspect of it that I just have the hardest time with. But the biggest dilemma I had here was which colors to use. See, when I plan far enough ahead of time, things tend to work out. I knew that Wyatt's birthday was coming up, and I thought this stamp would be perfect for him. But I had to order it well in advance since this is a Bella Stamp, which means it comes all the way from Canada. Then once I had it, I stamped it and stared at it for a couple of days until I figured out what to do with it. And here we are. Oh! And this is Pacific Point cardstock. That probably isn't the color you thought I was gonna use next, is it? See, I'm full of surprises. Ok, not really, but it sounded good.

Stamps: Little Johnny Depster (Stamping Bella), Birthday Basics (Papertrey), Canvas Backgrounder (CHF), Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko), Close to Cocoa (SU!), Paper: Papertrey white, Pacific Point & Close to Cocoa (SU!), Accessories: Trusty ol' Copics
