Masculine Birthday

Really wanted to play in the current CAS Mix Up Challenge and I needed a male birthday card for work so here I am (again) just before the challenge closes...

Stamps: Birthday (My Favorite Things)
Die: Happy (My Favorite Things)

The card is 5 x 6.5 in and cream colored even though it looks white in the picture. I used my precious wood veneer paper since the recipient is an avid wood worker. The green paper I made with Brushos - yes, I finally played with them and they are so much FUN!

Challenge (you really should pop over there to check out the gorgeous samples by the DT and the fabulous entries in the gallery):
