A "Manly" Birthday Card

I love making cards, but seems to have a hard time making cards that aren't really girly, pink, or frilly...anyone else ever have that problem?  I hope I am not the only one!

I dug though all my cricut cartridges and found this cute set of balloons on one. Since this was a 5x7 card, i cut the balloons at 3 inches and used white shadow cuts to make them pop-off the blue background.  I also used some pop dots on the back to give them even more depth.

I of course used my Sizzix Texture Boutique to give the bottom some detail, and busted out the I-rock to add some studs for a little extra detail.

Eric loved his birthday card, and that's what it was all about!
