"Rounding Out" the Early March Birthdays

Let's be honest, by the time you get to making the third birthday card in under a week, you start to despise stamps that say "Happy Birthday", amirite?

For this birthday card, I reached deeeeep into my stash to pull out a "Thinking of You" stamp from a retired SU set, and BOY am I glad I did. I adore the way it fills out the empty space!

The rest of the supplies are relatively simple (I like to keep my masculine cards non-fussy like that).  The lighthouse is colored in with Copics, the corners have been chomped ("Rounded out" if you will...) with my corner chomper, and handstitched hemp twine finishes things off.

I'm just tickled with the way this card turned out!  Maybe these masculine cards aren't so tough after all? ^.^
