CAS(E) this Sketch #311

I was in need of a few masculine birthday cards, with time being of the essence!  It seems I never have enough male cards made up ahead of time.  The sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch was perfect for a quick card.

In my neck of the woods, wildlife stamps are always a good choice for masculine cards. The elk image is from one of my favorite Close To My Heart stamp sets, Nature's Wish.  This set was retired years ago, but is still my go to set!  My image is colored with Prima Watercolor pencils.  The pencils were totally an impulse purchase on a Buy/Sell site.  The jury is still out on whether I love them or not.  But, I at least put them to use within days of receiving them!

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted.
