Masculine Fall birthday

We have 2 special Davids having birthdays this month, a cousin and a good friend.  They usually get something with fall leaves, but this year I'm using the gorgeous Birch Tree Window die for their cards.  This first one is for my cousin, an avid hunter and also a missionary to Africa.  He's home on leave this year, so his card will get to him in a timely fashion for a change!

David's Birthday

supplies: white, brown, and red cardstock, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid for Fall dp, Birch Tree Window, cardinals from Impression Obsession Birch Trees die, Impression Obsession Deer Trio die, Simon Stitched Rectangle die, sentiment fromWplus9 Fresh Cut Florals, adhesive foam squares

Our friend David now lives in Atlanta, and I thought I'd give him a glimpse of what he's missing here in the north:

David #2 BD

supplies: recycled confetti and golden apricot cardstock, unknown dp from eons ago, Birch Tree Window, Tim Holtz Script Holiday Words sentiment die, scalloped rectangles (My Favorite Things and Winnie & Walter)

I thought this abstract leaf pattern would make a fun background to showcase the birch window.  I simply added a sentiment die, and squared off the birch tree with a scalloped rectangle.  No fuss, perfect for a guy!

Thanks for coming by today - hope your week is going well!
