Masculine Birthday Card (That I Like!)

Greetings again folks!

I'm back today with a card that I am becoming very fond of, and can you believe it, it's a masculine card!  I know, I know.  I always say how I struggle with them, and only post about 1 out of every 4 or 5 that I make.  I just don't do well with masculine. *sigh*  Fortunately for me, I had a scrap from another project laying around, and I put it to good use.  Check it!

A dear friend of mine is celebrating his birthday and this is what I am sending him.  It's simple, and lovely, and masculine all at the same time.  I think I might have to incorporate more distress inks into my masculine projects from now on.  I think they go really well with the masculine themed projects.  I've combined the following challenges into this card:

Paper Sundaes #88 - Anything Goes
Ribbon Reel Challenge #11 - Birthday, inspiration photo, must use ribbon, lace or twine. (I made mine masculine)
Simon Says Stamp & Show - Men Only
Stamps R Us - Birthday

That's it for me today.  Back soon with some exciting news, hopefully, and more crafty stuff.
