A masculine birthday card

What about this one? I adapted this from a larger card into my 3x3 size. I would suggest this card for a guy. What do you think? I could have used blue as the base in this card or a dark green and I think it would have been just as good.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Early Espresso (I like this color because it is dark and shows up well like black)
Paper: Vanilla, Espresso, Designer paper
Accessories: Tim Holtz embossing folder (or Ranger), SU punches: word window, modern label and 1/2" circle punch

A card for Mom

I got the idea for this card from another class. Isn't that what classes are for?, to give us more ideas for our creations?  I wish I had a small daisy stamp though, it would have probably looked better. I think this card looks better in real life. The pearls definitely look better in real time which makes the whole card look better. This is still a 3x3 card. I posted the full version on an earlier post here if you want to take a look.

Here is the recipe: (all Stampin' Up!)

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Delicate Doilies, and the greeting is from a discontinued set.
Ink: Early Espresso, Certainly Celery
Paper: Vanilla
Accessories: embossing folder for the middle piece, any flowery embossing folder will do, pearls
