A Manly Birthday..It's MAN week for Challenges!

So the challenge this week for Birthday Sundaes ,Crazy About Cricut,  ScrapaliciousUSAChallenge#5 and Wacky Wednesday Challenge #40 calls for a masculine  card/birthday card & I just happen to have one to share. I find any masculine card difficult but every now and then something clicks and I make one without a problem! I have actually been successful twice this past month! Maybe spring stirs creativity?
I had fun making this card for my son-in-law! He complains if I send a store bought Hallmark card so I really had to make all efforts to send one of "homemade variety". Now I have to admit, I made this months ago so I could be ahead of the game and mailed it 2 weeks late! (hanging my head in shame) I'm not real good at trips to the post office!
Nifty 50"s Cart
Generic red paper and ribbon
WalMart Black paper embossed with Cuttlebug Diamond Plate embossing folder
Sentiment: Pink by Design
The smudge..okay I had some ink on my fingers but then I thought it looks like a greasy smudge. right? So I left it!
So there you have it....very simple but 100% MAN!
This card has also been entered in the Paper Variety :For the Guys Challenge

Later crafty friends!
