You're 50?!?!?! Someone's Growing Old!

Well, well, you are back, again, aren't you?! Awesome! I'm so glad to see you visiting me, again! Did you drop by to hear all about our new Bingo challenge at Catch The Bug? It's always a fun one and so easy to play along! Won't you come over and play with us? Remember, as always, there are digi prize packs from Bugaboo Stamps to be won!  Want more details and a chance to view our bingo board for this round? If you do, then come over to Catch The Bug for more details on our current challenge!

I have another birthday card to show you, today. This time, we have a male card.  Male cards can be so hard to do, sometimes, but I think this one turned out really cute.  What guy wouldn't love to get this?!  My card features the image and sentiment Gus Birthday - Optional, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. A mix of patterns was used - Plaid, Chevron and polka dots. (Yes, guys can have polka dots - At least on cards!) Several punches were used on the sentiments.  The buttons are recycled from an old shirt that was thrown away.  They're threaded with green and white Baker's Twine.  A tiny little bow was added, tied from thin white ribbon. The happy birthday is by Sentiments 4 You.

My Bingo for this challenge is: Starts With G (Gus), Die Cut/Punch and Twine.
