Masculine Birthday

I think I'm getting better at them, but man cards still give me such a hard time.  I love how this one turned out.  Except . . . I just feel like it needs a little "something" more.  I really wanted to add sequins, but didn't think that would stay with the manly theme.  The man I gave it to examined it for the longest time, turning it and looking at it from every angle . . . So cute.  I think he really liked it.

Challenges:
Patties Creations #101--embossing (it's hard to see it, up the gray panel is embossed with a canvas texture plate--gives just a subtle bit of texture)
The Paper Girls #65--solid cardstock

Supplies:
Stamps: Verve "Be Blessed" sentiment; Hero Arts French Script
Dies/embossing: PTI leaf die and "Linen/Canvas" texture plate; spellbinders classic circles, large
