Masculine Birthday

A very clean and simple card  using one of the In Wilderness stamps from SU.  I elected not to color this since it's pretty, as is..  The sentiment is from Well Scripted - also from SU.  I used some Cajun Craze and Paper Studio DP.  I don't think guys like a lot of frou frou and fluff on their cards and thought this would be a nice one - especially since I have so many masculine birthday cards to complete in the next two months.

The sketch I used for this is from Lily Pad Cards.  Be sure and check out this wonderful sketch on their blog.  I'll also enter it in the challenges at Crafty Boots Challenges (things with wings), Totally Papercrafts (clean and simple), and Mami Doodles (all creatures great and small).

Thanks for stopping by...........

Oh Lynn, this is just remarkable - such a fabulous CAS card and love the strip of paper against the stark white. Outstanding work! This will be in my mind as one to CASE in the future - between you and Kathy, I'm so inspired to do more CAS and less layers, lol! FABBY all the way around! x0x0

This is really an eye-catching card! I love the uncolored eagle against those vividly colored stripes and that hint of orange on the edges is perfect! GREAT card!
