Manly Birthday card

I struggle with cards for men. They are just not as simple to do. We can add all kinds of frills and flowers and such to ladies cards. But men ...... well it has to look manly. So then I feel limited. Nonetheless I made this card for my children to give to their dad for his birthday that is today!!

I used the sketch from here the ( ribboncarouselchallenge.blogspot.com )to help me along with a layout for the card. Laura has provide us a fabulous sketch to create with!

I used Close to my hearts cardstock, paper, hemp, and the image is cut out by the CTMH exclusive cricut cartridge and stamped with the coordinating stamp. I highlighted "DAD" with a mocha pearl and added a leaf because I just HAD to add something. Thanks for looking!!
