Happy Sunday,

I hope you all are having a relaxing Sunday and get some time to do some crafting.

My card today is made with my new Stampin' Up stamp set 'Happy Hour'. This set arrived at the perfect time for me to make a 'guy' birthday card I needed. This guy loves his glass of red wine so I went with that theme. The challenge at Addicted to CAS this fortnight is 'masculine' so this was another push to get this card made!
I remember seeing my fellow DT member Karen use this set to make a girly version. I asked her if I could case  fabulous this card. My version is very CAS and much more 'masculine'. I based the layout on the sketch below from Retro Sketches

This week is a big 'cheers' to Retro Sketches as it is their 1 year anniversary and you can choose any of the last 52 sketches. This one is their second ever sketch and I chose it because I felt it suited a guy CAS card.
This is what I came up with:

I will also enter this into the 'something for a guy' challenge at Craft Room Challenge

Hope you have a good day and perhaps a glass or 2 of red wine!
