Happy Birthday to my Bro!

In order to be in my family you have to have a birthday in either June or October! My Mom and Brother's birthdays are October, and my Dad, Sister, Hubby, and I are all June babies! So the running joke to my brother and sister is they have to find significant others who either have a birthday in June or October. Hee hee! No, not really, we aren't that mean!


My little brother's birthday was Wednesday...he turned 24! He is a biker dude and has his own Harley! I decided to go with the Harley theme to create his card. I think it turned out really good....and my brother really liked it too so that was a HUGE bonus! Especially because I don't think guys care about handmade cards. I made him a nugget tin too with Harley colors! I thought it turned out super cute but still manly! I created this card to enter into TA's sketch blog candy. Here is the sketch:

And here is my card and nugget tin:
And of course I had to decorate the inside of the card too! I wanted to keep it simple but add some color. The little pocket on the left was where I put his birthday money in! I never know what to get him, so I just give him some cash! He always likes that!
Papers:
Creative Memories
Random cardstock in my stash

Pigments, Inks, & Powders:
Copic Markers
Tim Holtz Distress Ink (spiced marmalade)
Adhesives:
Glue Dots
Embellishments:
Ribbon from my stash

Tools:
Creative Memories Personal Trimmer
Stampin' Up Ticket Corner Punch
Fiskars Treading Water Punch
Thanks for stopping by to see my manly card! I usually don't like masculine cards, but this one was actually quite fun!

That card is awesome. What a great idea. I am also such a fan of the decorating inside a card...just sort of finishes it off and gives it that extra touch!
