Masculine Birthday Card

Today is my sweet hubby's birthday, and I made him a CAS card. Men don't really care for a lot of frou-frou.

Starting out with white cardstock, I glued on a textured piece of antique gold paper from my stash of papers, then on the right, a piece of textured brown paper (also from stash). I ran some kraft paper with torn edges through a crimper and placed on top of it the sentiment (from Joann's)  stamped with brown ink (nothing says "masculine" like the color brown, right?). On the top is some twine and a very masculine brown button, also from my stash.

Here is the card:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
