Masculine birthday

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!! And here is the card I created for your inspiration:

I was definitely time crunched for this one, and when that happens, I definitely look for a CAS creation.  And it's more ideal if I don't have to color anything as that takes me a bit of time.  So, I was flipping through my Repeat Impressions stamps and came across this motorcycle which I haven't inked up yet being a little intimidated by it.  But I figured I could go with a black and white scheme and not have to color it.  Then when I stamped it, I realized you don't have to color it anyway and it looks fabulous just as it is!  I die cut a silver "happy" and heat embossed the "birthday" and was finished as quick as a wink (almost)!
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the House blog to see the rest of the DT's creations and then get inky and play along with us.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon code over in my left sidebar.

I love this stamp for a masculine birthday and the CAS the better. It is also pretty embossed in silver but my favorite is done in black. Love the little gems you used.

What a great masculine card, Heather! Love how it can be "whipped up" in no time and yet still look fabulous! I also like how you layered your sentiment over the bike image - it's the perfect finishing touch!

This stamp works so well for masculine cards. Works really well for the sketch challenge too!

What a fabulous masculine card, like the silver "happy" and your other embellishing of one of my many favorite of Wendy's stamps!
