FarmHouse Paper Co.: Happy Birthday!

Today I created a masculine birthday card for a sweet friend who is celebrating a birthday today! This theme always stumps me and I don't know why...I am a wife, mom of boys and sister to two wonderful brothers. So what's my hang up?! LOL!!

FarmHouse Paper Company made it SO EASY with their Market Square Collection...everything I used is from them.

Happy Birthday by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Card Base: Core'dinations (David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System); Patterned Papers, Cardstock Stickers and Stickers: FarmHouse Paper Company (Market Square Collection); Epoxy Sticker: Epiphany Crafts (Bubble Caps Round 14); Twine: May Arts; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-131 A-2 Matting Basics A, S5-132 A-2 Matting Basics B); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (the Best Glue Ever); Other: Computer Font (Happy Birthday)

I used Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Nestabilities® Card Creator series for the card front and added Market Square stickers to form a cluster to come up with this card :)

So happy birthday, Ken! Hope you have many wonderful wishes coming to you today and hope you like the card!

Your masculine card turned out wonderfully.
Masculine cards are a challenge for me as well, but besides my hubby and brothers...I am surrounded by females :)
