Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #66

Good evening!  I hope your week is going well.  I'm excited that tomorrow is Friday and that we have a three-day weekend ahead!

This week over at Die Cuttin Divas, their challenge is Buttons, Banners and/or Birthdays.  My birthday card stash is very low and I have a number of family and friends with birthdays in the next few months.  I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to start building up my stash again.  I got my inspiration for this card from Pinterest, which originally came from Courtney Lane Designs.  I tried to keep this card simple and guy-appropriate - always hard for me.....I think I did okay.  ;)

Thanks for coming by to take a look!
