A CAS Masculine birthday card

I'm trying to build up my stash of masculine cards as they go out so fast and they are always low.  I've made a birthday card to share:

It's graphic, free of embellishments and clean.  I've used only shades of green to keep its simplicity.
I was inspired by the muse at Muse Challenge:

Marion's card is sooooo pretty!  I've used a few elements of her cards to create mine:  The sketch of course, the monochromatic scheme and the simplicity.  I don't have stamps like those so I've used my set from Hero Arts to build the patterns made of diamonds then colored them with color pencils.

I've mentioned it before that it is a fun challenge!  I got to dissect a card then select elements to put on mine.  It is a fun learning process as I tend to be drawn to certain elements more than others and I think it helps me get to know my crafting style better. :)

I'm linking up my card to the following:
Rhedd & Rosie's - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - CAS
Cuttin and Stampin - Birthdays
