Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I have a quick card for you today using two challenges, Dynamic Duos 59 and Create with Connie & Mary SUM1301:
CCMC Summer Collection 13-001
I cheated a bit on the DD colors---I hope they don’t throw me out!  I used Basic Gray and Smoky Slate along with Midnight Muse!  I never have enough masculine birthday cards, so I inked up my new Rev Up the Fun set:
To make the sentiment stand out a bit more, I heat embossed it on top of the tire track!  I doubled up some Epic Day Washi tape for my striped banner…so easy to use!  And what a fun sentiment for the inside:
Good for any male, young or old!
I have a couple of little bird figurines on my porch, along with a candle lantern.  Cassidy thought it would be fun to give the birds a new home!
That girl is always thinking!!!
