Masculine Birthday

I needed to make a masculine card this week and I bought "Wildlife Reserve" before it retired for such an occasion. I wanted to add a few more bells and whistles, but I thought the ribbon was already a bit much for a man's card. I messed up on a sentiment that I placed over the elk, so I decided to add a strip of paper, which then led to another strip of paper, but I thought it gave it some interest without being to fussy or feminine. I wasn't in the mood to watercolor the image, so I stuck with stamping it in Chocolate Chip ink onto Old Olive cardstock. This card measures 4 1/4 by 4 1/4. I used my color spritzing tool to add some ink splatters...surprise, surprise!!! LOL! I seem to be using it on everything lately. I got some new goodies from Mr. Brown today...nothing major...all accessories, so I will be playing with them soon!

My daughter is whining at my side as I type, needing "FOOD NOW", she insists!!!!! I better go! Thanks for fluttering by!
