A CAS-ual Make It Monday

Hi All!
I'm combining challenges today! The tissue paper technique is from Make It Monday and the sketch is from CAS-ual Fridays. It's another masculine card too!

 For my card, I turned the sketch 180 degrees. I made the half circle from the banner and the happy birthday line.

The background paper is texturized with tissue paper. It's such a simple technique!! Put liquid glue on the paper, wrinkle up some tissue paper, attach it, flatten it through the Cuttlebug.

Thanks for checkin' it out!!!

   Paper: white card at 5.5" x 4.25"; The Paper Company- Kraft; white scraps
   Stamps: Papertrey Ink- Little Bitty Bird, Birthday Basics; My Little Shoebox- Cute as a Button; Studio G- Series 57 (background)
   Ink: Colorbox- olive, chestnut; Studio G- brown
   Other: twine; tissue paper; Scrappy Glue; Papertrey Ink- eyelet lace dye cut
