Masculine Monday with a Touch of Sparkle

Sparkle and masculine aren't often used in the same sentence, but I think it works on today's card.  Mostly because I kept it clean and simple (CAS) and used the colors blue, silver & white.  I wanted the sentiment to be the star of the show and I think it is.

I stamped the outside sentiment on a Project Life journal tag with a light grid on it. It's a little difficult to see in the picture.  I took these pics back in November with my phone after my camera broke and before I got my new camera.  The tag is the perfect size to use on our cards!  I bought them specifically to use on my cards for the guys, but I keep forgetting I have them.  Can anyone else relate?  Here's a better picture of what they look like, stolen borrowed from the SU website.

The inside has a punchline from a famous phrase in the show How I Met Your Mother.  We love the character Barney, so when Michele Gross of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps told me about this stamp set, I had to order it for my husband's birthday card.

Isn't that fun?  Even if you haven't seen show, the sentiment works!  If you haven't seen it, I encourage you to watch it on Netflix.  ;)

 Speaking of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, did you know they are having a design team call right now?  I'm seriously considering throwing my name in the hat.  Their team would be a blast to work with.  The only thing holding me back is fear of not being accepted.  What a silly reason not to try!  Will you join me in the call?

Special looking card that you made for your husband's birthday. Silver, blue and glittery is a nice touch for a masculine birthday card. I will see if I can find the movie "How I Met Your Mother". Always nice to find a recommended NetFlix movie. Also, thanks for stopping by my blog. Setting goals really do work. Off to work toward finishing my goals. Have a great day!
