Now I get to share my scrappy project with you!  I was supposed to create a card based on who or what I cherish today.  Well, it just so happens that TODAY (also NSD and Cinco de Mayo) is my Husband, Chris's Birthday!!!  So, this was an easy call for me-- I made his birthday card!

I find it easy peasy to make "girly" frilly birthday cards.  But, I find it a challenge to create more masculine cards.  So, I set out to make a simple, no frills, masculine card for him.  I love the look of Kraft of Kraft and I wanted to play with my new star dies, so here's what I came up with:

Products Used:
Jillibean Kraft Paper
SRM Birthday Stickers
Doodlebug Twine
3M Quick Dry Glue
Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Star Dies
ATG Adhesive Gun

Thanks so much for stopping by today-- I hope you were inspired!  Now, hop on over to SUZANNE'S Blog for your next stop!

Have a great National Scrapbooking Day!!!
