FMS373 Brad's Birthday

Hello, everyone!  Wow, I am having a real lazy day today; this card almost didn't make the FMS deadline, so I had to scurry to get it posted!  Here's the sketch:

And here's my card!  I did turn the sketch on its side; check it out:

My nephew will be 25 on Friday, so this is for him!  I pulled out a really old set from 2011 by Mark's Finest called Big Boy Toys; I stamped the image on a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock with Early Espresso ink, and brayered it with some (retired) Bordering Blue ink:

That shade of blue matches this DSP from Authentique's Nestled line;  I added some Early Espresso strips which were diecut with the little dotted-line die from Swirly Snowflakes.  I added a sentiment  from Itty Bitty Birthdays, inside and out, both of which were diecut with the Rectangle Stitched framelits:

No Cassidy photos today, but I did get a few pictures of our yard and field from early this morning; the warmer temps and the snow-covered ground caused some unusual fog; if you look closely at the last two, you can see a fox trotting through our field!

Thanks for popping in to visit today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

Bordering Blue is one of my all time fave SU colors. Great BD card. I need to make a couple of masculine ThankYou cards, and I’m not sure what to do, so I appreciate the idea. Those pics look COLD! I’m in Colorado this week for work. Snow expected Wednesday. Hopefully not a lot! LOL.
