Masculine Fall Birthday

I'm playing along with The Paper Players challenge blog for the first time! This week's challenge is to make a clean and simple masculine birthday card.

I grabbed the oldest-but-still-current stamp set that I own: "Lovely As A Tree." I stamped the image in Old Olive onto Very Vanilla and layered it onto Cajun Craze and Old Olive. I had a piece of "Color Me Autumn" DSP right at hand and thought a strip would give just a pop of autumn color. I was going to add the sentiment directly onto the Hello Honey card base, but I as I was getting ready to stamp it, I thought it would be better on a little banner--so I added that. I like the way all the elements go together, but the card stayed clean and simple.
