Masculine Birthday Card

 I combined the lovely sketch from Mojo Monday #228, the monochromatic +1 color challenge from the Fashionable Stamping Challenge and Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp and show to create a masculine birthday card.
 I started with the shapes/layout from the sketch and started pulling out stamps to create backgrounds on my shapes. I mixed in the Hero Arts stamps to create the backgrounds.  The main sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps - Happy Happy Happy.

The monochromatic is supposed to be blue but it is more gray and my plus one was the pop of orange.

Have a lovely Thursday!
