Retro Sketches Challenge #153 | IHP Store Update

Happy Friday Everyone!!

I had a chance to play along with this weeks challenge over at Retro Sketches!!  I just LOVE Arielle's sketches!!

For today's card I created a masculine birthday card.  I kept the design very clean and even created my own enamel dots using just card stock and glossy accents.  I tend to want to add girly accents but I think I was able to stay true to this weeks sketch and kept it very clean and simple.  What do you think?
