Man-tastic Birthday Card

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful week! August is usually a pretty busy month in our family. It starts with my daughter-in-law's birthday on the 1st, followed by my husband's on the 3rd, then my mother-in-law's on the 5th, and then our wedding anniversary is on the 12th. Phew! Sounds like a lot but somehow we got through it all -- and even managed to have a little fun along the way ;)

Speaking of birthdays, today I'm sharing the card I made for my husband's birthday. It turned out to be one of my favorite manly cards I've ever made. As a bonus I got to utilize 2 of my unopened stamp sets. Yay! Plus I got to do some coloring which is my favorite thing to do. Double yay!! Anyway, the details are listed below and I hope you enjoy my man-tastic creation!
