City Crafter - Masculine Birthday Card

Our challenge this week at City Crafter  is to create a masculine birthday card. 

For my DT card I created a card for my daughter's partner. It was his birthday last week and this weekend he's been at a big dance music festival in Belgium. I tried to create the feeling of being at the best gig ever. 

I created a background using alcohol inks and then randomly stamped patches of a Sarah Hurley text stamp. Then I dry - embossed with a Tim Holtz sunray folder. I found a crowd scene silhouette on the internet and traced and cut it on my Silhouette  Cameo. The sentiment is by Hero Arts. 

I hope you'll create any kind of masculine card and join us at City Crafter.  Please do visit the challenge blog, see what the rest of the team have done and meet our Guest Designer , Dana . 

I'd like to enter:

What a great background effect you've created using ink, embossing and stamping. And the silhouette in front is perfect for creating the feeling you were looking for. A youthful masculine design!
