Masculine Birthday Cards

Hi Dreamers!
Another hot, hot day in good old Michigan.  No worries.  I am staying cool inside and making lots of cards.  Do masculine cards give you trouble??  Well, not today!  I am here to help you.    I made a bunch of masculine birthday cards for my brother's box of cards.   I will be sharing them all with you over the next week or so,  Here is today's card.

This sweet dear is from Blue Ridge Impressions and is colored with Copic Markers.  

I used  burlap scraps and twine to add some texture.   On the inside, I kept it simple and left room to write a note.    This sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

And how about some fun challenges!!!!

Truly Madly Crafty: animals
ATCs with Attitude: anything goes
Fat Pages with attitude: anything goes
The stamp man: summer colors
Charisma cardz: favorite animals

Stay tuned for more masculine birthday cards!! Hope you are having a great day.  Love ya.
