Belated Birthday

It's Top Tip Tuesday!  This week we are challenging you to make a masculine card.  Good excuse to get a few guy cards ready for the stash.  Why is it that the stash never has the card you need when you need it???
This past weekend I had the chance to take 2 classes from Memory Box owner Dave Brethauer at my LSS so of course I had to use a Memory Box stamp for this card!  The card base is also from MB, the sentiment is Amuse and the base stamp is a long texture stamp that is also a MB (from the bugs and blooms clear set).  Copics were used (very gingerly) to color the blue birds and the brown berries.
Instead if lots of flowers and sparkle, this guy card uses texture and twine to catch the eye.  That way it feels like I've had a chance to play with my stamps/paints/markers/embellies and still have a card I can give to any guy I know. :)

We have 2 prizes available for folks who play along with us and make a masculine card or a crafty tip this week at Top Tip Tuesday.  Join us won't you!?!
