All Dressed Up - Challenge #14 - It's a Guy Thing / Male Birthday

Hello again, my friends!

It's time for a new challenge at All Dressed Up and our theme is "It's a Guy Thing / Male Birthday."

I have made a card using the "We Make a Good Team" image. 
When you purchase this image it comes with several different files so you have some fun variations to play with. Check out all the fabulous images in the All Dressed Up Shop.

I have to tell you a fun story about the fabulous burlap paper on my card. Back on my birthday, I got to spend several hours in a Scrapbook/Quilting store in a neighboring town. I made a lovely new friend there, who happened to snag the last pad of 6 X 6 burlap paper. After she paid for it, do you know what she did? She gifted me with half the pad...and she didn't even know it was my birthday! What a lovely blessing she was! :o)

Here's my card:

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, DCWV - Burlap Paper;
Image: All Dressed Up - We Make A Good Team,
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Beaded Squares;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black;
Stamp: Stampin' Up - Itty Bitty Banners.
