A Masculine Birthday Card

We celebrated another brother's birthday this past week! My older brother, Jason turned 30 something!
I always find it somewhat challenging to create masculine birthday cards. I started off with a unique layout - sketching my own by combining different layouts that I saw on Pinterest. Then I chose the colours. Brown and blue generally come to mind. This time I threw in a brighter accent colour. I added a mixture of texture, patterns and punched out images. Here's how it all came together:

Here's wishing Jason a great year ahead!
