Paper Pretties' Wednesday Challenge #196: Manly Cards

Paper Pretties 'Fun Quotes'.  Cardstock:  Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey 'Archaic', textured vanilla.  Ink:  Chocolate Chip. 
Our challenge this week is to create a masculine project .

According to the males in my life, these are the requirements for a 'manly' card:
1) NO ribbon or sparkles.
2) NO flowery sentiments, and humor is preferred.

I think I avoided those no-no's fairly well, and stuck with an earthy color combo as a bonus.  This card is intended to be a birthday greeting, so the inside sentiment will read '... Guess that makes you a day older, too!'.  Kind of fits with the 'Archaic' DP, doesn't it??

Sketch is courtesy of Clean & Simple's Fall-To #139.
