Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration So Happy For You makes fun Birthday Cards

Hi all,
I have something crafty to show you after a short hiatus. I have a male friends birthday coming up, so I needed to make a card.
Now, this isn't a typically male card, but I think my friend will like it. I have used a few inspiration spots for this one, the first being the colour challenge over at Just Add Ink, the masculine challenge over at Less is More, and the birthday challenge over at SUOnly (which was incidental). I used the Sale-a-bration set So Happy for You, and stamped the star image using Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry. I embossed the bottom half of the card using the Big Shot, and stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry, a little bit of Whisper White Grosgrain finishes this card off.
Don't forget, you have 1 week left to get this stamp set for free! All you need to do is spend $100 or more, and you get to pick one of the Sale-a-bration sets for FREE, so, it's time to fish out your wishlists and get ordering! Call me on 0405 173 237 or shoot me an email
Until next time, 
Happy Stamping!

Great texture and very elegant card, great for any gender:-)

You're right about this being not typically male, but unisex cards are extremely useful and this would work as easily for a chap as it would for a woman.
Whatever, it's great !
Love the CAS style!
