Masculine Birthday Card

I used two stamp sets that I wouldn't usually select for creating a masculine birthday card, but I think they worked when I combined them with some Soho Subway Designer Series Paper.

My card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock, with a layer of Soft Suede, and then my Soho Subway DSP.  I stamped my arrows using Soft Suede Ink, added some Soft Suede Ribbon, and then placed my Happy Birthday in the center using Dimensionals.  I usually have requests for masculine birthday cards every month at my stamp classes, and sometimes you have to think outside the box and use sets that you normally wouldn't select for that occasion. 

The following were used:
Card Stock: Very Vanilla #101650, Soft Suede #115318
Designer Series Paper: Soho Subway #130140
Ink: Soft Suede #126978
Stamp Sets:  Hello, Lovely #130240 w or #130243 c, Timeless Talk #126605 w or #126607 c
Ribbon:  Soft Suede 3/8" Taffeta #122967
