The Birthday Ambassador

It's official!  Today I was dubbed the 'Birthday Ambassador' on my job! Yay me! lol   And while I wish I could say that it's because everyone wants a card from lil' ole me- I think it's more because no one else wants the job!  And since this now gives me an excuse to craft (like I actually need one!)- it's perfectly okay with me!


With that being said, I found out that the next birthday on the calendar is THIS WEEK *&* it's a GUY!  So that meant I had to come up with a masculine card quick!  For someone who has only made 1 masculine card before, I was pretty much shaking in my boots!  In the end, I decided to hunker down and knock it out!  Here's what I came up with!




My co-worker is a retired Senior Chief in the Navy, so that inspired the blue and gold color scheme and the stars.  I'm not sure you can tell from the pic, but I ran the star through my Cuttlebug in the birthday folder, and that added just the right touch for me!

All in all- I feel like this card came out pretty well, and I finished much faster than I expected!  I think that I'm really going to enjoy this Birthday Ambassador thing!

That's a great card. Sometimes I think we make masculine cards harder than they need to be. This one's perfect.

Thanks Stephanie! And I'm inclined to agree with you- I think I stressed waaaay too much about this card. Once I got my concept down- it was pretty easy! Thanks for stopping by!
