Hello.  I hope everyone is having a great day. I have had a migraine since yesterday, but I am feeling a little better so it was time to make a couple of cards.  I need some masculine birthday cards so that was the first thing I worked on.

I used an old technique on the card (inking up the inside of an embossing folder).  I love the look but I always forget about it.  I saw it on some one's card this week and decided I need to use it so I took my brayer out and set it on my desk so I wouldn't forget.  You will see me doing it again.  I also rounded the edge of my card.   

The digital image is from Newton's Nook.  They have some really cute stamps.  I don't have any but I have several on my wishlist so you will be seeing them again.  I used one of their free images today.  I used green and blue to make the card masculine.  I think it will work for a couple of people on my birthday list.

I am going to use this card in the following challenges:
   Newton's Nook - Birthdays
   Fab N Funky - Birthdays
   Paper Shelter - For The Boys
   Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
   Wednesday's Inspiration - Anything Goes

Off to eat a late lunch.  Chat with you later.
