I was scoping out the world wide web in search of manish birthday cards. They're all brown. With fish, or tools, or golf balls. And ties. What is it with ties? I must hang around too many low brow fellows, because I wouldn't send a card with a tie on it to any man that I know. But I digress, as I usually find myself doing, when it comes to the old world wide web!
This card, by Pamela at http://fishydesign.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/cfc-53-24th-birthday/ really grabbed me. It's got a really fun look to it that doesn't scream "manly". Change that pink to any other bright color, and it would be perfect for any birthday.
StampinUP's Typeset Alphabet has a number die. I don't know if it would be possible to replicate her random floating letters without using a hand held punch. But I am definitely inspired to come up with some way to recreate this not so manly birthday card. Thanks, Pamela!
