Lots of Candles Masculine Birthday Card

Some days I don't feel much like crafting.  Some days I don't feel much like blogging.  And then there are entire weeks when I don't feel much like doing either.  Obviously this has been one of those weeks!  Thankfully there are lots of challenges out there to help me get back into it, and inspire this manly birthday card I made this afternoon:

The colours came from the latest Stamping 411 Colour Inspiration - old olive, not quite navy, close to cocoa and more mustard.  The design was inspired by the latest Mojo Monday sketch, although as you can probably tell, I did manage to put my own spin on it again.  These things have a tendancy to evolve a bit in the making!  

 Never mind, still got me back into the crafting and blogging - at least for today anyway!

Stamps used for this card:  'Sanded' background, 'Big Bold Birthday' (candle) and the SAB set - 'Whimsical Words'
