Simple Birthday Card for Nephew

I have quite busy lately in my craft room.  As a matter of fact, I haven't gotten much of anything else done.  I don't know where the time goes.  I don't get through with one birthday or design team duty until it's time to go again.  And I don't belong to as many design teams as some of you do.  I think I must be getting slower in my old age.  Of course, I've never been really fast when it comes to making anything.  I think I'm too picky.

One of my nephews has a birthday next week as well as his mother.  I've been working on a card for each of them.  I made his really simple.  I don't think men really care for fancy cards.

A2 Card Base
Background Paper - 8X8 Echo Park "Dots and Stripes" Paper Pad. All the papers in this stack are good colors for masculine cards.
Label is from a Make It Now project from Cricut Design Space.  Here is the link to it.  I changed to papers to make it appropriate for what I needed.

Thank you for visiting with me today. 

 God Bless You!!! Peggy
