Seize the Birthday #2 {Masculine} and Mo's Digital Challenge #169 - "Emboss it w/a Mo Image"

Hello friends! Feeling a little guilty 'cause I've taken a little time to catch up on some of my DT upcoming cards and make a couple new ones as well to enter in a couple of fun challenges,  instead of doing laundry and other housework.  I did say a little guilty, didn't I - hehehe.  Last week I participated in the first Seize the Birthday challenge with a feminine card. This week the challenge is to use the same sketch but make a masculine card with it. Here is the sketch (which you can see I flipped to a horizontal orientation):

Since I used one of my favorite masculine images from Mo Manning I am also entering this card in the Mo's Digital Challenge #169 - "Emboss it w/a Mo Image".  I used dry embossing on the bottom panel of my card. The digital image i used is called "King for the Day".  I tried to make the chair fabric look like suede (or aged leather) - it was a bit challenging for me, but it didn't turn out too bad. This card reminds me of my husband who is the very happiest with a Diet Coke in one hand and the remote in the other.  Since I left the sentiment off the front, here's a quick photo of the inside - kept it very clean and simple as I think a man might like :o).
So that's it for me tonight. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me - I'm sure glad that you did. Til next time... hugs and happy crafting!
