Masculine Birthday Card Made from Scraps!

Hi everyone! I have a quick and easy card for you today, and it's a card for a guy. It seems like we always have trouble coming up with cards for the men in our lives. But best of all, except for the base, it is made entirely from scraps! I am hoping to inspire you to use up some of the little pieces of cardstock that you have laying around.
            Stamps: Nature's Nest
            Paper: Soft Suede Textured, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold, Mocha Morning DSP
            Ink: White Craft, Champagne Shimmer Mist, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede  
 The base is Soft Suede textured cardstock. I stamped the dragonfly in white craft randomly on the base. Then I sponged a little champagne shimmer mist onto the dragonfly stamp to stamp the image in gold. The greeting is from Sincere Salutations. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink. Then I inked up the dragonfly stamp in Soft Suede ink, stamped off once on scratch paper and then stamped on the edge of the greeting to give a light image. I matted the greeting on Chocolate Chip cardstock. The rest of the cardstock was just various strips or pieces I had lying around.

I hope you enjoyed today's quick and easy card! Thanks for reading my blog!
