Masculine Birthday Card with Freshly Made Sketch #249

I went a little "wild" with the Ink Blot stamps again!  This card is for my nephew who will begin his army military service soon after graduating as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Loyola ROTC program.  Needless to say, I'm extremely proud of him!

Close to My Heart products used:
     Champagne CS
     Colonial White CS
     Desert Sand CS
     Aspen CS--retired
     Ink Blot Stamps
     Card Chatter Birthday--retired
     Salute Our Heroes--retired
     Ranger Fine Detail Silver Embossing powder
     Aspen Green Ink
     Desert Sand Ink
     Slate Ink

Here is a link for another army camo style card in which I used the back side of the ink blot stamps and another one here done in girly colors.

The layout for my card came from Freshly Made Sketches #249:

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
     Seize the Birthday--anything goes
     Stampin' Royalty--anything goes
     Simon Says--going wild

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
