One Layer Wednesday75...Happy Birthday for a Guy

Just a quick post, today.  Made this card for One Layer Wednesday...to make a one layer card for a guy's birthday. Got my idea from the latest PaperCrafts magazine entitled Cool Tools....page 140 Blue Without You by Susan Opel.  I loved her 4 blue hued squares.  I changed it a bit, and made it  3 squares, one layer, different sentiment...and ...minus the ribbons, too:)!!  Basically, just the idea of the  squares and their positioning:)!!
I masked and sponged a punched out 1 1/4 " square(Memento inks: Danube Blue, Bahama Blue,Summer Sky)...added the dotted border (Papertrey Ink Background Basics: Circles)behind and the sentiment(Papertrey Ink Birthday Basics).  I thought it looked a little boring, so I added a 1" circle cut out and, like the squares, used a black marker to draw around the shape...to add a little interest.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
