Happy Birthday Dude!!

Challenge #383 at Shopping Our Stash was chosen by teamie Donna, I'm sure she wanted us to change our mindset from Holiday cards!! Happy Birthday Dude is the theme and since I have been in "snow" mode for the last few challenges it almost stumped me, masculine cards are so hard to make and this is the quickest card I've made in a while. So we want to see a Birthday card for a Dude....a big guy or a little one.

Sketch Saturday had a really great sketch this week so I wanted to use it as it was perfect for this double sided designer paper from Stampin'up that I think I've had for almost a year as well as the matching cardstock, (just opened the pack to make the card. The vertical Happy Birthday is a couple of years old and I think I've used it once. The glasses brad is the first from a pack of brads from eyelet outlet also over a year old. 

Very happy the one sheet of DSP had both design on it (bonus) 

Finished the inside with  a scrap of paper and a sentiment from a bin at Michaels Craft Store.

I am entering this in:
Saturday Sketch ~~ week #542  I flipped the sketch to vertical
I took a few liberties with it.

Thanks for stopping by  and check out all the Dude cards at the Main Blog.

The DSP is perfectly matched on this card Barbara, the cute pair of glasses brad just finishes this card perfectly.
Well done.

Isn't it great to use some of our "older" product.
