Mod Squad Challenge - Masculine Birthday Card

Today's card will be entered in the Mod Squad Challenge this week.  The challenge is to make a masculine birthday card.  I made this one for Garrett, a young boy that was mauled by a dog and who lost his vision.  I saw the story on Face book and you can see it Here.
Garett's birthday is Feburary 29, and he is asking for it to be the best.  If you have time, please send a card.  
Here is mine. 

I simply die cut the Simon Says Die and water colored the balloons.  I added the blue foil border on the side.  The sentiment was curved, so easy to do with clear stamps.  Then added a few sequins.  I hope that Garrett will be very happy this birthday. For those of you that do not visit Face Book, here is his address.

Garrett Brown

Thanks for stopping in and I hope that you have time to make and mail a card for Garrett. 


  1. h what a story, you're so thoughtful to reach out and help Garrett celebrate! I will send a card as well! Thanks for his story and his address! LOVE your card, t's happy and boyish and delightful, surely will put a smile on his face! xo~

  2. What a wonderful card and a wonderful gesture for you to make him a card.

    1. I will try to work up a card for him as well! So sorry this happened to him, but maybe the cards will bring some cheer into his life. Sure hope so.

  3. I will send a card too. I saw it on Facebook, hope he gets a lot of them!!! Your card is wonderful. I love that border, have the set and don't use it as much as I should. Great colors and design too. LOVE the balloons, perfect for a kid's birthday.

  4. What a lovely card, Barbara. With the dimension on the balloons and the border, Garrett should be able to see it perfectly with his fingers. Great card. Lovely gesture. I will try to send a card too. Thank you for joining us at the Mod Squad Challenge. Good luck.
