Someone special birthday

Here's a relatively quick card I made for DF for his birthday that was on Monday. I'm please with it as it's so hard to make a card for a guy without making it too embellished and frilly. ;p



Such a cute stamp from Stampabilities, his name is Maxwell:


A bit of stitching around the stamped image and the Say Cheese deco paper:


Inside of the card, appropriate paper, huh?:
