Birthday Cheers

Happy Thursday! It's almost the weekend. Cheers to the weekend. I counted today. I have 22 more days before I cut my hours back at work to 15 a week. My count down has begun. I don;t think my co-workers would like me flaunting that so I'm not saying much at work. It's not like I'll be leaving entirely but I'm looking forward to having more time at home.
I am stocking up on birthday cards and I need some masculine cards for birthdays coming up so I have a masculine card this evening.

This is a stamp set that I won last week in a blog hop at From the Heart Stamps. The stamp set is called Birthday Brew. I Colored the image with Copic markers and fussy cut the image and then made a second image to be able to pop up the suds and the candle. I mounted that on a scrap of brown paper die cut with Spellbinder's Lattice Rectangles. The sentiment, from the same set, is die cut with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags and inked with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.. The background plaid paper is a scrap from my box and to finish off I used washi tape for the contrast in the background. I used the sketch at i {heart} sketches with a twist #148 as inspiration. The twist this week is to use washi tape. Bingo! I got them both in this one.
I am entering these challenges:
On Sunday, the hospital in town is having a service for all those who died there in the last 6 months so they'll be honoring my little grandson, Alex. We'll be attending the service. Tom;s Dad will be coming out for the service to and then stay with us for a few days. I'm hoping to find some time to craft! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an awesome weekend!

Wish I had thought about this idea for several male birthdays past, but I'll keep in mind for the future. I love the colors and how you brought the image to life.

The color scheme you chose and the plaid papers do lend a masculine feel to your card, but hey, there are some ladies who would equally appreciate that cold frosty mug! :) Thanks for sharing your card with us at Cards in Envy.
