April's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

It's here!
One of my favorite days of the month!
This month's blog hop challenge was:

This month's blog hop is dedicated to all the boys and men in our lives! Now's your chance to create Father's Day projects, boy birthday cards and more to build up your stash! Focus on masculine color schemes, fresh pattern combinations, understated embellishments and unique uses of images you may already have in your stash!

There are tons of fun cards to hop along to so i'll keep this short and sweet :)

I broke out my Postmarks stamp set and some Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine Paper to make a fun masculine-ish birthday card.
*note: the kraft glassine gets more fun texture the more you handle/crinkle/ball and twist it up - keep some on hand for a fun and crafty stress release! we're usually so careful with paper but it can be really therapeutic to just mush it and ball it up sometimes :)

So here's the front of my card:

and the inside:
