Seize The Birthday #4

After a mad scramble through my stash of cards this evening... I had to run out and (gasp!) BUY a card for my son to give to a friend.  I had absolutely zero cards suitable for the male population.  And I must say that I find a lot of my cards have somewhat useless sayings, that really don't apply to many situations...  90% of the cards I need are simply for birthdays, so I'm trying to keep that in mind every time I start to make a card these days.  Okay.  Now down to the business at hand - knowing that it is a masculine week, I made a point of working on this week's Seize The Birthday sketch.  I now have a stash of { 1 } male birthday card :o)
Edited to add: I just realized now that I hadn't mentioned that I used this week's Inspired By photo as colour inspiration to use for a guy card!  So I'm a little late, but I'm linking it up now!
