Happy Birthday Dear BIL!!!

Happy Birthday, Steve!!!
Yep! I had to make another masculine birthday card.  
I have to admit with the husband, nephews, brothers, fathers and BIL it seems like these masculine cards are getting a bit easier........or maybe it's because I've accumulated some more masculine stamps/papers/IPs!!!

Regardless, here's the card I made for my BIL!

Steve is a outdoorsy type of guy...... He hunts, rides quads and motorcycles, camps,, I'm hoping this fits the bill for a card for him.

Just a peek at the inside.

I used 3 challenges to make this card........The SCS Sketch Challenge, the Off the Wall Craftiness Color Challenge and the Impression Obsession - Let's Hear it for the Boys challenge.  All of these really worked together to help me think of something for this card!

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Make a Wish stamp set and dies
Impression Obsession Cover-A-Card - Distressed Curduroy
Basic Grey patterned paper - Life of the Party
Tim Holtz distressed ink - Chipped Sapphire

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

You know I have to comment on this one Stephanie. Love that corduroy! It is the absolute best stamp to use for a masculine card. You paired it with that cute birthday present, and I love the brown shadow behind it. Great job and I hope you win the IO challenge!

Fabulous!! Love that background stamp - it almost looks like PTI's corrugated cardboard. I'll have to track it down - thanks for the inspiration.
