Masculine Birthday

Hello again! Two days in a row, can you believe it? Masculine cards are a great challenge for me. That's why I'm so glad that I finally bought the "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set. It is definitely a classic in the SU catalog. It's been around forever and I was sure it was going to retire, Tbut it didn't. We get this one for at least another year. It is quickly becoming my go-to set when making masculine cards.
This card was cased from a card I saw on splitcoast. If you've never checked it out, the address is If you go to the gallery, there are literally millions of pictures of cards, scrapbook pages, and gift ideas. There is even a SU gallery where you can search by specific stamp sets. It's a very cool site. Anyway, back to the card, I did change several elements from the original. The colors are different and I added the brads in the corner as well as adding the woodgrain.
Hope you enjoy this one and I will try to post again tomorrow! Have a great Sunday!
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Woodgrain background
Paper: Dusty Durango CS (retiring), Close to Cocoa CS (retiring), Kraft CS (being renamed Crumb Cake in the new catalog) Always Artichoke CS, Very Vanilla CS
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Always Artichoke brads (retiring), 1/16" hole punch
