Seize the Birthday Week #2

Hello & Happy Thursday!

 Seize the Birthday posted their second challenge today! I'm excited to play along because it's helping me get more birthday cards on my card rack. :)
Here is the sketch...

 Yes, you'll notice it's the same sketch from last week but that's ok. We are to make this one into a masculine card.
Here is my card....

I pulled out this deer image from Northwoods Rubber Stamps because I love this image! I tried coloring it once and did not like the look of it. So, I tried inking it in a solid color and I loved it! I use this stamp more than ever now!
It was hard to get a good picture of this card since it's been gloomy & dreary here. We had sunshine this morning for about 2 hours then it disappeared again. Hope we soon get some sun!

Seize the Birthday Week #2 Card:

Stamps: Northwoods Rubber Stamps, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Woodgrain Background
Ink: Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke, To The Nines DSP
Accessories: Word Window Punch, Oval Nestibilities, 2 Sided Tape

What I love about this card is that it is very mail friendly! 
Nothing popped up and no embellishments added!!

Hope you like!

Well, that is all for me today!
Thank you for stopping by & have a great day!

Great card. Love that Northwood image. They are a local stamp company here. I can never color and glitter the images like they need to be.

I was scrambling to finish cards and quickly snap photos while the sun made a brief appearance this morning! LOL I guess I've got it bad :)
