Old Guys Rule Birthday

Here we go again with another birthday card.  Do you know how hard it is to come up with a guy card?  You'd think it would come easy for me given I have more guys in my life than gals.  Three sons, three brothers, seven grandsons and that is not counting the brothers-in-law.  Whew!  With two more February birthday cards to make, I am so glad only one is another guy card.

I am playing along with two challenges this time.  I didn't see on either that I couldn't combine so I'm hoping I didn't overlook something.  The colors from the ColorQ Challenge were just right for a guy card and the sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge meshed perfectly.  I really like how it turned out.

 Stamp Sets:  Gorgeous Grunge, Delightful Dozen (Stampin' Up!), Inks:  Basic Gray, Island Indigo (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Basic Gray, Island Indigo, Pool Party (Stampin' Up!); Accessories & Tools:  Silver Brad

Here is the inspiration for the colors to be used in the ColorQ Challenge.  Just click on their name or on the image below to see all the great entries in the challenge.
