Masculine Birthday Card - SSS Challenge

I was on a kick with masculine cards. I made this card for a Simon Says Stamp Blog Challenge - Father's Day/Masculine. The challenge suggested using ranger products. Most of the cards I make use tons of ranger products -- my Archival Inks! All the inks used on this card are Archival. I spent a long time deciding which brand/line to go with for my ink pads. I decided on Archival because of the beautiful swatches I found on blogs online. The colour was just much crisper than other brands. I'm super happy with my purchase! My only gripe -- not enough shades of purple!!!

I used a couple of new-ish Simon Says Stamp birthday stamp sets for all the stamps on this card. This was my first time using Simon Says Stamp stamps... I was very pleased! I love the creative designs they come up with, so I will definitely get more in the future.

I kept the colours simple, sticking with a couple brown colours and three shades of blue.

There is an itty bitty sentiment on the inside! :)
