Masculine Birthday

It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week the theme is --- ANYTHING GOES. I decided to create a masculine birthday card with some outdoor themed stamps. Most of it is monochromatic, except for my brightly colored fish and the bits of moonbeam added with a white gel pen. (For a mini tutorial on creating customized brads visit this post.)

What a great masculine card - and love your colored trout. My husbands favorite kind of fishing. This card would certainly make him smile. Great job on your Anything Goes card this week.

Fabulous card Esther, like the wood grain distressed background and those trout are great- like how they are colored and how you have them displayed. Take care.

This is simply fantastic and perfect for the man who likes to fish! I love how you colored the fish and tied them up together and the wooden background gives this the perfect masculine feel! Awesome creation!
