MFTWSC314 - Happy Birthday

So it's that time of year in my family, when many of the boys and men have birthdays, creating a need for masculine cards. This one is for my dad and I used the current MFT Wednesday Sketch as my inspiration:

This is one of my favourite Happy Birthdays - its font is strong and graphic and perfect for masculine cards. I added some MFT Red Hot stars for a little celebration.

I used:
-MFT Delicious Birthday
-MFT You Move Me

ETA - the more I looked at this card, the less happy I got. So I did a do-over!

I changed to a square, changed the shade of red (garnet is January's birthstone). Lost a happy - and yet I am happier! lol!

I think both cards are fabulous! I love the bold graphic feel of the repeated happy sentiment and those little stars are the perfect finish!

I hope you don't mind me saying but I like th first version best, like the grey and my fav bit is the very creative way you used the red stars...this card really inspire me..thank you

And now you have two cards ready. ;) I know you like the square format but I'm with Sandie on this one although I do understand the garnet coloring for January.

Both designs rock in my humble opinion 😘

Two wonderful cards Ardyth - but i can see why you prefer the 'do over'. The garnet is striking.

Definitely wouldn't want to have to pick a fav between these two fabulously clean and tidy cards! I really like how the red pops on card two but I also really like the simple color scheme of the first card! This stamp makes my heart smile!
