Masculine Birthday


This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down for my first jingle belles guest designer card. :)

This is the last of the cards I made last weekend, and hope I made it in time, for a few challenges I saw.  I tried to push myself to create another masculine card, since I don't do well with them. lol 

Here is my card.

I inked my embossing folder, and love how the Blueprint embossing folder looks a bit distressed on my paper.  I embossed the star with some silver embossing powder to give it a bit of pop, and added my sentiment.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets.  Paper Smooches has the cutest fonts and images.  I'm going to send this to R's son, for his birthday.  I hope he likes it.  I am going to submit this for the following challenges.

Virginia's View Challenge #13: Embossing
Just Us Girls #283: Masculine
Paper Smooches: Photo Inspiration

I'm off to work.  I hope you have a great weekend!
