Birthday card for a male

Hello sweet peeps,

Here is my masculine card for today made in a jiffy since time is at a premium with schools shut for the entire week. I have used my Prima clear stamps for the first time and the sentiment is from Hot of the Press (clear stamps too). Incidentally, these stamps have been gathering dust for over two years. The edges have been sponged with TH salty ocean and the crystals are from Kaiser Craft. The printed paper is gift wrap again and I am really resisting the urge to buy more. Also the realization is dawning on me, that I have been penny wise and pound foolish. And never mind the space it occupies in my craft room.

I will submit my card in the following: - male card and atleast six months old

See you later then.

Oh Monica, this is so beautiful. I just love the simplicity of the design, yet it has so much class. I love the stroke effect of the blue, so fabulous.
Good luck with the challenges.
Love Sandra xxx

Monica, this is perfect for a male; love the blue and those wonderful designs - are those stamps? The border is marvelous! Leave it to you to recycle and use things wisely! I'm starting to do the same with other items in the house. I really like the style of this card - it's simple and fabulous! Eid Mubarak! :-)
