A Masculine Birthday

Hey Bloggers! Happy Halloween!
It's mid way through the week and I am very much looking forward to the weekend. 

Today my daughter took a trip to the University of Alberta for a tour. Now she won't be attending for another year and a half but she is planning ahead. And she had a great time, and got a lot of information. It's so hard to believe that she is growing up so quickly. 

Today's card is a masculine birthday card using the Open Sea stamp set. I started with a vision of what I wanted to create, and a plan to CASE a particular card with some changes to make it my own. And it didn't turn out anything like the original card. too funny!
I made the card for the Playing in Paradise challenge #90. Challenges are a great way to get some creativity going so I hope that you can all find your creativity too!
