Cool Birthday

Do you find it difficult to make masculine birthday cards?  I do.  Mainly because none of my guys would appreciate a beautiful nautical or nature card.  So I try to make fun or goofy cards and when possible, cards related to their occupations.   This card falls into the first category .

I love this digital image and sentiment by Eureka. Colored the cat with Copics.  Digging through the scraps of designer paper, I found these stripes - perfect. The sentiment was cut out with one of the stitched oval dies by Elizabeth Crafts.
I used the sketch at Stamploration,  turning it sideways. 
Here is the inside:

Pile It On - scraps
Crafty Creations - animal
Cuttlebug - tic, tac, toe ( animals, die cuts, sentiment)
Crop Stop - anything
Daily Marker - 30 days of color
Tuesday Throwdown - all about words
Stamploration - theme and/or sketch
