Masculine Birthday

 Hello Friends ... Happy Monday!

Here we are at the end of January already ... where is the time going?
I had a little time this morning so thought it would be fun to select a few challenges from Paper Playful and create something to play along.  I found three challenges that I thought would go together for a card.

Here's what I've come up with . . .

And, the challenges I've chosen to play in are as follows . . .

Creative Crafting Uncles Challenge #49 - Happy Birthday

Pearly Sparkles Challenge #91 - CAS (clean & simple)

Let's Craft & Create Challenge # 203 - AG + Sentiment

This clean & simple card was created directly onto my card front.  I've used Tim Holtz distress inks & large sponge daubers to create my background then created my scene.  I chose this regal buck to use as my focus animal because I had planned on joining in a challenge that required an 'animal' but then I realized that though still listed, the challenge was actually closed.  But still worked perfectly for the masculine aspect for today's theme requirements.

Product used . . .

Memory Box 'Woodland Deer' (#98679)
Cottage Cutz 'Grass Border' (CC-BR07-001)
Tutti Designs ' Happy' & 'Birthday' dies
Lg hard round sponge & TH ink to create the sun

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a fabulous week ahead!
As always . . .
