Can You Case It

 

Color Challenge CYCI#98

The Wilderness Awaits Masculine Happy Birthday

 

Card created by Pam Staples, Design Team Member of Can You Case It? #pamstaples #sunnygirlscraps #stampinup

Fall has arrived in central North Carolina and the weather has been wonderful.  This past Thursday we enjoyed a wonderful field trip to Vollmer Farms with our sons Kindergarten class.  I actually learned some new facts about cows and chickens!  Did you know that a momma Holstein Cow memorizes the spots on her calf and never forgets those spots.  Chickens actually bond with chicks when they hatch and those chicks come from eggs that she may not have laid.  

My parents also arrived on Thursday and we had a very excited little boy especially when he found out he was going to stay at their camper.  That means my husband and I have been childless the last few evenings although I did go to the Melting Pot for Girls Night Out with some girlfriends as we said farewell to one of our friends that will be moving to Spain on November 3rd.  We will miss Jennifer but know she is going to love being in Spain.  

CYCI98-Pam001I don't know why the activities of this past week inspired this card but somehow they did.  The sketch from Can You Case It provided a nice, clean inspiration for this card.  The card features The Wilderness Awaits Stamp Set and the Remembering Your Birthday Stamp Set.  The stately Elk sets the tone for a great masculine happy birthday card along with a monochromatic setting.  Tip Top Taupe is perfect on this card with cardstock layered with a sheet of the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack.  

The embillishments feature the Chevron Natural Ribbon, Gold Metalic Buttons and Linen Thread.  I love the neutrality of the card. It is perfect as a masculine card.
