Happy Birthday!

Well, it's no ones birthday that I know, but at Creative Inspirations this week, the challenge is to make a male birthday card. So, it's always good to have a stock of cards ready, right? I think the distressed kraft paper really gave a manly look to the card. Instead of using ribbon, I took strands of linen yarn, held them together and zig-zag stitched over them to form a cord. The cake is a digi from Sassy Studio Designs- actually the Un-birthday cake! So what are you waiting for? Go make a birthday card for the favorite male in your life and link in up at Creative Inspirations - you could win a great prize package from

This card is also for the challenges:
Truly Scrumptious - sketch
Papertake Weekly - Buttons, bows, brads, bling (any combo of)
Paper Garden - Birthday
Double Dutch - Boys Only
Pollycraft - Distressing
Creative Card Crew- Celebrations
Gingersnap Creations- Birthday greeting
Allsorts - Just for Men
