Two Masculine Birthday Cards

Hello Everyone,
I hope you all had a great Christmas/Holiday.  After all the Christmas projects, I thought it would be nice to change things up a bit.  So, today, I have two masculine birthday cards to share with you.  Here is the first.

The moose image is from Mark's Finest.  I did a little color variation by inking the samp with brown and green ink.  I added some gray marker for shading.  The Sentiment is from Victorine Originals.

For the second card, I also decorated the envelope. 

Stamps: Wild Horses Trio - Onyx Xpressions; Background stamp -Blockheads Background and Borders Full Sheet.  I stamped the background stamp in two different inks and masked the horse image.    CS: Black and Sahara Sand from Stampin' Up.

The background stamp is used again on the inside.  I also stamped  sentiments from Victorine Originals.

And, how about a few fun challenges for my masculine birthday cards?!!

Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments: Anything Goes + Sentiment
Paper Play Time:Anything Goes + Sentiment
Mark's Finest: Anything Goes
Party time Tuesday: Anything Goes

That's it for now!  I be back in a few days with a new Technique Challenge with Blockhead Stamps!!
