Masculine happy birthday

Good morning friends,
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Sunday. We are having a beautiful day with some very high  temps. My granddaughter is taking part in her first high school horse show today, so we will be going to spend some time outdoors watching her jump and do dressage as well.

The card I have today is for a male birthday and I followed the sketch from
Seize the Birthday

I made the card from Kraft paper , and used an embossing folder and a stamp from the Chronology range by Docrafts. Highlighted the design with walnut stain Distress inkpad.  The stamp was a freebie with the  magazine. I think this will be put to great use for masculine cards in the future.
Finished it off with a sentiment attached with brads.

Am entering the following challenges:
Seize the birthday #4....masculine with sketch
One stop craft challenge #214...Anything goes
Crafty Catz challenge #168...Anything but square
Inspire me Fridays...Anything goes
Simon says Stamps challenge...Anything goes
Lady Anne's stamp challenge

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a wonderful week ahead. Take care and have fun.
Love, Ursula
