Birthday Cheer

 Hey there-

As I was reading through challenge blogs, three coalesced in my mind's eye for a card rather quickly. This rarely happens but when it does I know I need to make the card pronto! Especially since it was a MAN card! Whoo Hoo!

The challenges are Just Add Ink (feathers and leaves) The Male Room (wood) and Watercooler Wednesday (masculine).  


I used Stampin Up's Hardwood background stamp for the wood. The leaves and feathers are both from Simon Says Stamp, the sentiment die stack of shapes is from The Greetery and the sentiment is from CTMH.


 

Thanks very much for taking the time to visit.

I always find it difficult to design a men's card. You did it great, the wooden background is a nice idea!!

The background 'wood' stamping looks great and shows off the wonderful feathers to perfection Cat. What a fabulous and creative masculine card x.

Do you know I thought I had already left a message on this one, but obviously not. Don't know what I am doing half the time! I love the muted tones and the dimension on those leaves. They look amazing against the wood background. What an excellent male card xx

Cool, stylish and deliciously handsome, Cat ... the fine detail texture on the leaves is gorgeous ... and is complemented beautifully by the background woodgrain! Hugs, Anita :)
