Happy Birthday - with a Masculine Touch

My Dad's Birthday is coming up this Friday and I wanted to get ahead of the game and create his card early.  An October birthday calls for some fall colors and the paper in the Huntington Paper pack is just perfect - plus it is great for masculine cards.

I used sketch #86 from RetroSketches for this card.

I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut my notepad paper and stamped it with the Noted Backgrounds stamp (retired).
