Happy Birthday

skippingstones1

Good morning friends!  Today is Tuesday, which means there’s a new sketch over on the Skipping Stones Design blog :)  I kept this card pretty simple as I wanted to do some old fashioned stamping on most of the card.  My sister asked me if I make masculine cards and I do, but not many.  So this was the perfect opportunity to showcase this fun set, Grunge, and work on my masculine card stash. I stamped the background with Sahara Sand and the sentiment in Chocolate Chip.  Heavy metal eyelets, twine and a button round out the masculine elements :)  See, it’s not always a girlie girl card! LOL  Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day :)
