Another male birthday card

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I have made another male birthday card.  These are proving to be a bit more challenging for me.  I don't have a very masculine die so I'll have to look around to see what other dies I can add to my "have to have" list LOL!  So addicted... but that's another story.

Challenges submitted to:

I tried two techniques that I found I really liked the look of while perusing cards for inspiration online.  The first is the watercolor background- blue fading into green.  The second, a double layer stamp.  I stamped the first layer in Vintage Photo distress ink, then stamped another layer with Versamark and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.

Size:  5 x 7
Papers:  Core-dinations, scrap box
Ink:  Vintage Photo distress ink, Versamark
Misc:  Zing! silver embossing powder
Dies:  Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles 
Stamps:  Serene silhouettes, Inkadoo sentiment

Thanks so much for looking!
