Masculine Birthday

 Ellie's theme at Allsorts for this week's challenge #713 is 'Boys & Men' so I've made a birthday card that I think might be great for a guy. Graphic and bright colors.

I've used Distress Oxide inks ( Fossilized Amber, Salvaged Patina, Pine Needles) with Altenew's Modern Circles stencil. I inked once and rotated the stencil for a fuller background.  When the ink was dry, I hand-doodled the lines and circles with a black pen.  The sentiment was cut with Altenew Fine Alphabet die and the sub sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Stop Drop Party set.

Prizes for the next four challenges from 

WOWVOW, Craft Stash, AALL & Create, and Ruth Hamilton Designs!
