Masculine Card Hybrid!

Good Morning dear friends.  This card was inspired by this weeks Stamping 411 Sketch and also today starts our first challenge of the year for SULatenight stampers, but definitely not the first challenge as we are now at challenge 154.  But this week was to use planes, trains or automobiles.  And since I do not have a current stamp with any of those, I decided that my digital studio would work just fine as they are always current.  So I used the MDS stamp set Sentimental Journey for the plane and lightened it by putting the opacity at 50% and then over it I used the MDS stamp set Daring Adventure.  I used the square punch in MDS to make it the size I need and made the color of the punched image crumb cake.  The background is also the MDS Daring adventure and I did it using the crumb cake on whisper white.  I made that big enough for the background and printed it out on 8 1/2 X 11 whisper white card stock, cut both of them out and attached it to the card base.  Of course you can see that I added some hemp twine, natural and black (black is now retired, but I had some left) and attached the button by running the twine through it.  I am really happy with my hybrid card and the fact that I now have a masculine birthday card.  I thought this was perfect for a birthday card!

Here is another view of the card!

I used what I have left of the paper I had printed out and added the stamped image from the stamp set, Happiest Birthday Wishes.
