My Kind of Handsome

I have a simple card for that fun dapper guy in your life - he could be a good friend, a co-worker or a dear husband - I think it works for all of these possibilities!
I used Rustic Cream cardstock for the top panel - layered onto a white card base.  I used a Stitched Mats Square die on the panel and a Small Bow Die for the bow tie - both from Lil' Inker Designs.  The perfect little sentiment stamps come from a set called My Kind of Guy by Waltzingmouse.  Inside I stamped a simple HAPPY BIRTHDAY so I could make it romantic or just friendly by the message I hand wrote inside.

My card was inspired by this week's Curtain Call Challenge
I like my little masculine card - masculine and not fishing or sports themed!

Stamps:  My Kind of Guy - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  White, Rustic Cream - PTI, DP Vintage Vogue/Pink Paislee
Ink:  Archival Leaf Green
Accessories:  dies - Small Bow Die and Stitched Mats Squares - Lil' Inker Designs, glue dots.
