IB54 Cozy Denim Birthday

Hello everyone!  I am so sorry to be so lax in my posting, but we are beginning to go through my dad's stuff....years and years and years of stuff!  I am sure some of you know what I'm experiencing!  Anyway, I did take out some time to play with Laurel's latest Inspired By challenge because I needed a masculine birthday card, and it was a good inspiration!  So here we go:

And here is the prompt:

I also used the FMS sketch for this week:

My recipient is kind of a no-frills guy, so I let the Authentique papers from the Original and Genuine collections do most of the work!  I cut out some pieces and adhered them on, and I did add some random grunge stamping with Smoky Slate and Night of Navy:

and I used the new Itty Bitty Birthdays with the new Rectangle Stitched dies:

And since it was late, I thought it would be fun to put this sentiment from the retired Birthday Wit set inside:

This nice cozy scene is sure to be a happy inspiration for you...can't wait to see what you create!  Be sure to share it over at the Inspired By blog!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Awww, Miss Cassidy's picture stole my heart today! That girl loves her dog, doesn't she?! You created a great guy card with that paper and a few stamps, LeAnne! Love the colors and the grunge look! Well done!

This is one terrific masculine card! I like the denim grunge look and that cute little pocket. But that sweet photo of Cassidy and her best furry friend win the prize tonight!
