Dakota Birthday Greetings

With the release of the new 2012 CTMH Autumn/Winter Idea Book & Catalog on August 1st,
there is just so much fun new stuff to play with!
It's like Christmas in my studio....  ;)

Today I have a masculine birthday card to share with you all, created with some of the new products.

I loved this card made by Jackie Pedro, and re-created it with CTMH products.
I'm not sure if she used a sketch or came up with the design, but it's super cute!
And I love me a great sketch... this one will be going in my sketch book.  ;)

On my card, I used the new Dakota paper packet.  
I especially love the barn wood and houndstooth B&T papers in it.

Another new item I used is the Slate button and Slate cardstock, and of course the colour Slate... it's new, too! 

Before I go, I also want to mention that I have Blog Candy up for grabs (until August 10th).

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used all CTMH (unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Dakota paper packet; Slate, Colonial White CS
Stamp:  Just a Number
Embellishments:  Licorice Opaque, Slate Button, White Hemp
Punches:  Sm. Star (SU), 2 1/4" and 2 1/2" circles (EK), 1 3/8" square (EK)
Other:  3D foam tape, Paper piercer, ScorTape (ScorPal)

You'll have to check out the blog hop on August 5th to see a few cards I made with this awesome paper pack. I love what you did with your card, and thank you for showing me that the slate mini-medley pack would be perfect with Dakota. :)

I love this card! As usual, I love your artwork! I currently have this paper pack out on my table. You have inspired me to get back there to play!

Manly cards are the most challenging for nailed it with this one. Love the loose know hanging from the button slightly, seems appropriate with these papers.
