Birthday Card

My son-in-law's dad's birthday is December 17, so I made him a card.  I've said it before, I have the hardest time making masculine cards.  Here's what I came up with. 

Starting with the first layer, I cut the dark brown cardstock with Spellbinders Labels Eight, one of my favorite of the labels series.  I layered that with a rectangle cut from Classic Rectangles Small; I rounded the corners with my trusty corner rounder.  The scene is from Stampin' Up!, and I colored it with BIC Mark It! markers.  These are alcohol based markers, like Copics, but much less expensive.  I love how the coloring came out!  The Happy Birthday in the upper right corner was cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles Small and Large.  I used Pop Dots to attach it to the card.

Your card design is great. You've directed me to and informed me of some really neat items! I'm going to be learning and browsing this evening! Happy New Year!
