Happy Birthday Card

I don't know if you're like me on this, but making cards for guys is not always easy.  Mainly because supplies for making masculine cards are so limited...and most men that I know don't appreciate a handmade card as much as women do.  So I always find it challenging to make one.  I've even been known to *gasp* buy a masculine card on occasion! 

But recently a co-worker asked me to make a card for the guy in her life and here is the card I made.  It actually wasn't too hard to create...lots of texture, black and brown!

Embossing Plate:  Sizzix
Suede Paper:  Karen Foster
Stamp:  Inkadinkadoo
Rub on dots:  Chatterbox
Brads:  Hot Off the Press
Twill Tape:  Martha Stewart

The good thing?  I got to use some supplies that have been in my stash forever.  I'm entering this into this week's challenge at Less is More, to use polka dots on your card.

Thanks for dropping in today.  Hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far.
