Birthday Sundaes Challenge #22

Hello Crafters,
This week's Birthday Sundaes challenge is to incorporate at least 3 brads onto your birthday card, and don't forget a birthday sentiment to your card front! The DT has some great inspiration for you this week so pop over to the Birthday Sundaes blog and check them as well as our guest designer this week Laurie from Scraps By Sissy.

I made a masculine card this week for our challenge and I don't want to sound full of myself but I think it just might be the best masculine card I have ever made! I made it for my Grampy for his birthday and as soon as I got it done Brian saw it and decided he wanted the exact same card for his Grampy (their birthday's are only a couple days apart and this year both at their party on the same Sunday)! So in the end I ended up making 2 of this card and I might just make another as a spare because I find it hard to make masculine cards and I am always struggling at the last minute to make one. I chalked, distressed and inked the heck out of this card (Kelly will be so proud...she has been teaching me well) and I just love the effect and hope you do too!
Thanks for looking and hope you can play along this week!
Tara

Nice card. Where did you get the horse image? I did not see that info in your post. Maybe I missed it. Jamie ~~ http://craftygirl21.blogspot.com/

Tara, I think I am going to have to scraplift this one! My mother and mother-in-law LOVE horses. I think this would be the perfect card for them. Beautiful!

Thanks for leading me to this image. My brothers girlfriend is in love with horses so I am going to use it for a card for her. Thanks!

Like the Western birthday card. I went to the site you indicated that you got the digi image from but was not sure how to find the horse image. Could you please tell me more how to find it? I created a Western card the other day for the Old West challenge.

It is an awesome masculine card! The horse looks amazing and the you embellished it just enough for it to still be masculine, it is so hard not to add glitter and bows ;) Great job Tara!
