Birthday Sundaes challenge #11

This week over at Birthday Sundaes the challenge is to make a masculine birthday card. And don't forget to include a birthday greeting/wording on the front. Now, masculine cards are a challenge for me. I am getting better though! I decided to us the Camp Out cartridge for my card. I cut the bass fish and the frame. I popped up the fish in the frame. I used an atyouSpica pen in Silver to fill in the cutouts on the body of the fish. I cut a dark gray layer for the back that I used the hide conture feature on my Gyspy Girl so I would have a backing for the holes in the fin and tail. I then filled these with Aleene's Paper Glaze to give it a little shine. I also put some on the 'x's' on the corners of the frame. Since the inside of the frame cuts out, I cut one in the blue so I would have a inside to the frame. I did a little doodling with my white jelly roll pen on the fish. I hid the eye cutout also. I used a black copic and colored a white half pearl for the eye. I've ran out of black ones!! The sentiment is from two different stamp sets. The 'Fishing you a' is from Scrappy Mom's 'Amusing Animals' (I masked the rest of the stamp so I could use just this part) and 'Happy Birthday' is from My Pink Stamper Family and Friends set. I punched out the sentiment after I stamped it. In fact, I punched several so I could stack them and then popped it up also!! The bg designer cardstock is from Little Yellow Bicycle-Free Spirit-Blue Bubbles. Hope over to Birthday Sundaes and join in on the fun!! Hope ya'll like my card!!!!! :)

This is a great "manly" card Sharon! Love all the layers and dimension. I always have a tough time with cards for men, but this one is perfect!
