Guy's Layered Birthday

Masculine cards are not as common as girly cards so I wanted to share this birthday card with you. I love this patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket that I bought a couple years ago; the patterns a colors are great. I cut a few different size rectangles and layered them at different heights using dimensionals. The yellow mesh strip is actually drywall mesh tape that i snuck from my Dad's garage to provide a unique and interesting element. My white card base seemed a bit too stark so I used a bit of blue shimmer spray to add interest and tie it in with the patterned paper. Last but not least, I added a screw head brad to highlight the sentiment and make sure it didn't get lost in the busy patterns.
