Masculine and Grunge Birthday!

Are you having a good weekend?  We are having a great weekend!  My wonderful husband took the boys flying today which gave me a few hours to do laundry and make some cards!  Woohoo!!!   I'm thinking I may even get an hour of crafting in tomorrow!

I have missed creating this week and as the start of school quickly approaches I'm hoping to get a few extra cards made a week (though that may be wishful thinking)!


I decided to play along with with this week's CAS(E) this Sketch! and Seize the Birthday challenges!  This week's Seize the Birthday challenge was an anything goes challenge so my masculine card fit in perfectly!!!

I do love the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set!  It is going to come in perfectly!  I used silver embossing powder to stamp the lines and just Basic Grey to stamp the dots.  After the fact I decided that the white was a little blah so I used the new Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder to add some texture!  I embossed the sentiment in Silver just to add a little something!  The edges are distressed though you can't really see it here!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Midnight Muse
Stamp: Lovely Labels, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Versamark, Basic Gray
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, Artisan Label Punch, Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder, Stampin' Distress Tool

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!
