Fashionably Late

This card is fashionably late for a friend’s birthday, well, so the card is late and the image is sporting a bit of 1920’s fashion.  He’s 1920’s Kody from Some Odd Girl.  I followed the sketch at April's sketch challenge over at the Some Odd Girl blog.

As this card is for a guy I kept it pretty simple and just used the elements from the sketch as the embellishments.  I didn’t have a stamp that would fit in the pennant diecuts so I just used some rub-ons for the ‘HbB’, which stands for Happy belated Birthday.
