Falling Feathers

Back again on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog,
this time I am sharing a Masculine Birthday card with you.
It's clean.  It's simple.  It's manly.
I used the Poppystamps Tiny Feathers.  Using Black card stock I spritzed some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold all over and then die cut.  I also cut some feathers out of Gold Foiled Paper.  I love the mix and match of these.  I also added 3 'falling feathers' on the inside of this card.
Found some Black, White and Gold Designer Paper in my stash for my background.  Created a textured center panel using White card stock and a Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  The embossed panel was adhered to a strip of Black card stock which adds a nice little border on either side.
Sentiment Heat Embossed in Gold by Gina K Designs, Up And Away.  Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony for accents.
A perfect Masculine card.
Here's what I used:
