Happy Birthday, Brother!

No, it is not my brother’s birthday, but when it is, I have a hard time making a card for him. Him, or any other male for that matter. No matter how hard I try, my cards always look very feminine. Making masculine cards is definitely something way out of my comfort zone. When I do make one, it always ends up looking so plain. I ordered the Passages paper, hoping for some inspiration on making a masculine card.  Well, I got the paper on Monday and decided I would try using the Heart 2 Heart challenge this week to design my card. They did a sketch challenge. It is City Scape from the Wishes Idea Book. Here is a graphic of the sketch:

…and here is the card I came up with:
All of the products used to make this card are CTMH. I used the Passages WOTG, A Little Everything (March 2010 SOTM), Cocoa grosgrain ribbon and Wonderful Friend (June 2010 SOTM). The watch face on the front of the card is covered with Liquid Glass. The final size of the card is 5x7.

I think we need a guy card challenge, don't you? I'd love some more male inspiration! Love your two!
