A Birthday Card on the Masculine Side

Hello everyone,
Its been awhile and I am sure you have been as busy as I have.  Now that Thanksgiving is over, all we have to look forward to is the Christmas rush.  LOL. 

Well, I had a birthday card to make for my son who just came into town from Canada.  We were lucky enough to see him and his family for a few days this weekend.  What fun!  So I am sharing the card I made for him.  Its not that complicated, as I didn't have lots of time to fuss.  But then guy cards always seem to be more simple.  At least to me.

The card was made with black and gold cardstock.  The main design was done with a cuttlebug embossing folder and then I ran black ink over the top to pop out the design.  I cut out the saying with a Spellbinders tag die and heat embossed the saying with black embossing powder.  Added a ribbon and it was done.  I liked the look of it and so did he.  Simple yet elegant.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
    More Than Favors-Wacky Wednesday #60-Birthday Theme
    Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #83-Make It Masculine
    Rainbow Lady's Challenge #180-Cards for Men
    Here Come the Boys Challenge #19-For the Man/Men In Your Life
    Whimsical Designs Wednesday Challenge - Add Texture

Happy Stamping,
Sandy (Cheesy)
