Today's Free 4 All Challenge is to make a birthday card. I made one for an adult's birthday. I think this card could be given to both a man or a woman. The birds soften it a bit, but I love the wood look of the "on", which says masculine to me, too! Stamps and dies are from Heartfelt Creations. Product list and instructions for recreating this card below:
