Male birthday card with Concord and 9th

Hi Everyone,

I'm just back from my holidays (boohoo!), and so I am sharing another recent make of mine with you.

Today I would like to share a male birthday card I made for a family member, using my recently purchased (partially won! - see video linked below for more info) Concord & 9th stamp set called Birdie Banners. I think it's a super versatile set, not necessarily only for male cards, but the fact that it CAN be used for male cards is a huge bonus for me - I always struggle with these!

I had loads of fun stamping out this little scene. The recipient (whose name is Rua, hence the letters on the birdies) seems to have liked it, I hope you like it, too!

 Male card or not, a bit of Wink of Stella shimmer is a must! :o)

I also used the PPP iridescent stars, both on the outside and on the inside.

I am entering the card into the following challenges:

Seven Hills Crafts - Photo Inspiration (picture in the middle)
Crafty Friends - All things cute

Inky Impressions - All about boys

I also have a video to share with you - it's not a process video of how I made this card, but it features my recent Concord & 9th purchases, so I thought you might be interested:

Have a great Sunday afternoon and a fab week!
