Masculine Happy Birthday

Hi stampers! I have a simple, masculine card to share today. I needed a birthday card for my oldest son, who appreciates clean and modern designs. I pulled out some Stampin' Up oldies but goodies, and I'm pretty happy with the way it came out.

I'm playing along at The Card Concept, where they are celebrating their second anniversary. Though mine is not an anniversary card, I was inspired by the colors and textures in the challenge badge. I'm also playing along with Anything Goes at Retro Rubber. They would like us to use stamps over a year old, so I've added some dates to my supply list below.

Here's my card inside... 

Products Used (All Stampin' Up):
Stamp Sets: Happy Birthday Everyone (2015), Family Reunion (2012)
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Sahara Sand Textured (2011)
Ink Pads: Versamark, Crumb Cake
Tools: Big Shot, Heat Tool, Square Lattice Embossing Folder (2012), Backgrounds Texturz Plates (2009)
Accessories: Black Embossing Powder, Silver Brads (2008)

Have a great day, everyone!
