Wish Big Jordan!

I really like the concept of the Seize the Birthday challenge.  In a nutshell, they create one sketch and the first week we are to design a feminine birthday card and the second week a masculine birthday card so you can have a well stocked supply of birthday cards.  Coming up is my friend Jordan's birthday (a dude).  For some reason I can never remember when it is.  It's written on my birthday calendar, in my phone, friends remind me etc. and I usually still miss an opportunity to say "Happy Birthday."  So, this year I made his card on time and I plan to mail it to him TODAY!  

I was making cards last night and I yelled "Happy Birthday" when he called and he was sooooo confused.  I told him my thought process and he just cracked up and replied "at least you got the right month."

This is my take of the sketch.  It's very clean and simple and manly!

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
Stamp: Bring on the Cake
Cardstock: Midnight Muse, Old Olive
Ink: Midnight Muse
