LOC Masculine Silhouette Birthday

It is time for a 'Man Card' - we seem to gravitate to the feminine cards and not have so many masculine ones - I am trying to create a few more

And it is not too hard with this gorgeous Sweet Silhouettes clear art stamp set illustrated by Nina Brackett for Layers of Color

Add to that the Spellbinders Postage Stamps Die and the Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets Die from the Donna Salazar Designer Collection, all of these Dies have been cut with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

Layers for lots of dimension

The sentiment is also from the Layers of Color Sweet Silhouettes clear art stamp set and the Embossing Folder from Tim Holtz.

The gorgeous DP is from the My Minds Eye Lost and Found collection.

This card is for the following challenges:
Card Crafters Circle –  Happy Birthday
Crafty Catz - Something New
Polkadoodle - Vintage / Retro
Simply Create Too - More than 2 Layers
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Any Sentiment (but you must use your scraps) Embossing is a scrap
Charisma Cardz -Happy Birthday  
Whimsy Inspiration - Happy Birthday
