Upcycled Birthday Wishes

One of Steve's birthday cards had got a large die cut sentiment on the picture.  I'd had my eye on it all week and as soon as he took his cards down and gave them to me for upcycling I made this birthday card.

The lovely marbled paper was a freebie from Jessica at Lincolnshire Marbled Art.  I trimmed the paper to a square, layered it onto dark blue card and attached it the card front.  I then attached the sentiment across the card with foam tape.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Upcycled greeting 
     Lincolnshire Marbled Art burgundy, blue and green paper
     Dark blue card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Crafty Cardmakers - Masculine
     Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
     Pearly Sparkles Challenge - For the Boys/Men

This is a fantastic masculine card, but it would be good for a female too. Such an interesting background. So glad that you shared it with us at Seize the Birthday Challenge.

A super card Kath, a fabulous background - you sound like me I always grab everyone's cards so that I can upcycle bits and bobs - the only difference is, with me they just sit in my craft room waiting to be used!
