I love this great inspiration, and I actually made two cards.
For this first one, I created a plaid background as my staring point...
I wanted a couple of masculine birthday cards, so I pulled out my favorite masculine set right now called Guiding Light.
It was fun to try this out with the non traditional colors of Aqua Mist, Canyon Clay and Smokey Slate (from SU).
Thanks for looking, wishing you a great week ahead!
