Happy Birthday



Here is a card I made for my DH...just celebrated another birthday.  I always feel pleased when I can create a decent masculine card...sometimes I struggle with that.  I am adding this one to the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.  First I masked the side area with post it notes, sponged on two colours of Distress Inks then over stamped with the Grunge Me set from PTI.  Lastly I used my Scor pal to score the lines on the sides, added twine and the sentiment rounded with my Corner Chomper. 
Thanks for taking a look.

Perfection in it's simplicity, this is such a fabulous masculine card, you're not alone in struggling with them, but you'd never be able to tell looking at this, Karen! Fantastic!

Great masculine card, I need to remember this technique because masculine cards always stump me.

I think this is way more than just 'decent' - and something my DH may be receiving a copy of [giggle] thanks for the fabulous masculine idea. ;)
