Male Birthday Card Using CTMH Timberline Paper and Cricut Artiste Cartridge

Hello friends.  It is nice of you to drop by and check out my latest creation.  I really had fun creating this one.  I wanted it to be about cars; but also to be a lesson to play; as we forget to do that as we get older and take on more responsibilities.  

It is time for another Mid Challenge at Digi Stamps 4 Joy  - Challenge 96 - For the Boys.  You have one more week to create something fun for the guys.  Creating a man's card is always a challenge for me.  I guess it just doesn't come natural; like creating something for a girl/woman.  LOL!  I loved this digital stamp from the first time I saw it.  It is "Dad's Austin" and I thought it was perfect for my son-in-law's birthday.
