Masculine Birthday card

My friend M and I co-hosted a Mediterranean theme birthday party for B this past weekend.  I am a terrible host as I am a terrible cook.  And Mediterranean food?  OMG!   I had searched many many recipes and picked a few side dishes that seem to be not-too-difficult to make.  My friend M made great kebabs and I just hoped that my side dishes would not ruin her food.  I am glad that everyone liked the food I brought (or did they say they liked it out of politeness?)

Even though a lot of time was spent on searching for recipes and trials and errors, I couldn't go to this birthday party without a card.  I'm very happy that the card itself didn't take forever to make:

Thanks to the CTMH Artfully Sent cartridge, this card came together extremely easily.  It got the card front for me, then I cut the banners, stamped the sentiment and added some dots.  Easy peasy and I think I could easily transform it to become a feminine version. :)

My card is entering the following:
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Craft your passion - Anything Goes
Heart 2 Heart Challenges - Anything CTMH goes
Love to Scrap - Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!
