Swimming Mallard Masculine Birthday

Hello, everyone!  Today I am sharing a quick card I made with an image from Doodle Pantry.  It's been ages since I used one of Laurie's beautiful images, and I thought this Swimming Mallard would be perfect for a masculine birthday.


I printed the precoloured image onto white cardstock and stamped the birthday sentiment (The Old Island Stamp Company) in Ancient Page Chocolate.  I added a strip of leftover patterned paper and a thinner one of brown cardstock, along with some blue twine, tied in a bow.  

I would like to support these fun challenges:  Allsorts Quick and Easy 1/3; Come and Get It Things that Start with B (birthday, bird, bow, brown, blue) 1/3; Craft Your Passion AG 1/3; Creative Card Crew Sentiment 3/3; Creative Fingers AG 2/3; DL.ART April Linky AG UE 1/day; Doodle Pantry AG Digital Image 1E; Fresh Brewed Blog Birthdays 1/5; Hiding in My Craft Room Freestyle 2/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Inspiration Journal Everything Goes UE; My Craft Creations April AG UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; {PIN}spirational AG 5/5; Pixie's Snippet Playground (snippets of patterned paper and cardstock) 2/3; Scrap and Craft Use Ribbon or Twine 2/3; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; The Outlawz Twisted Thursday AG Twist Clean and Simple 1/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 4/5
Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!
