Noble Deer Birthday Card

The challenge at Shopping Our Stash this week is to make a card for a boy/guy. That works out perfectly for me, one of my male cousins has a birthday coming up. He is a true country boy and the retired Noble Deer stamp by Stampin' Up! made the perfect image for his card. The layout comes from the Monday Lunchtime Sketch from Technostamper. I used a woodgrain embossing folder with Early Espresso sandable card stock. I love the look of sanded card stock and for this Noble Deer Birthday Card it gives it a nice rugged feel. The patterned paper is from the Hooked on Fishing collection by The Paper Loft. The sentiment stamp is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set by Stampin' Up! and the jute twine is by American Crafts. Thanks for stopping by!

My Noble Deer Birthday Card is entered into the following challenges:
