Happy Birthday

Hello, Everyone!  Welcome to another What If? Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  These week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes.  Here is my card for your inspiration:
I started off with the compass rose, stamped the metro map background, then finished it off with a stenciled brick background. I masked the birthday stamp so I could stamp the words side by side instead of top and bottom.  This is going to be the birthday card for my dad for his birthday next week.  I think it has a fabulous masculine feel to it.  I hope you will get a chance to play along.  And remember, if you "need" any of the stamps you see, I have a 10% off your entire purchase code on my left sidebar.

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "5812W Compass", "5814W Metro Map", and "1113W Birthday"
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 12" stitched circle and "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle
MFT brick wall stencil
