I think this is a great design for a masculine or teen birthday card. And it's pretty easy to create too. Use a line stamp (or a strip of craft foam like I did) and ink or watercolors (like I did) and stamp the stripes. Put down a piece of double sided tape and add glitter to it for some punch. Add a large sentiment - mine is from Clear and Simple Little Critters Too - to match the tone of your card and voila!
Make it feminine with pretty soft colors (pinks and peaches) and an elegant font sentiment. Or bold with neon yellow, one strip of black and a big bold sentiment.
I'm joining the Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday gang with this "blue" card.
