Such a deliciously moody photograph! But that's not the direction this card went in. This card went to masculine-suitable birthday instead. Clean, simple, no frills. What I really wanted to play with out of my box of tricks was word dies because I haven't used them enough. I'm pretty happy with the stack of 'Happy' and the shadow effect of the black at the back in this card. I toyed with adding some black/plum enamel dots but decided that in this case, less was more.
Update: Surprised but thrilled that this card was picked as an Honourable Mention at Colour Me.
