Birthday Wolf

My SIL has a birthday coming up and I think I have the perfect card for him.

A few months back I stamped some images from the, now retired, In Wilderness set that my friend has.  When I was trying to think of a card for SIL I thought of this.  He's a graduate of NC State and their mascot is a wolf.  NC State Wolfpack colors are red and white.  I think he'll like this card.

I used LeAnne's sketch from Paper Players this week.

My image was the perfect size and shape for this. Thanks LeAnne!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Clean and Klassy, Bonnie! Your son-in-law will love it! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

Oh, that *is* perfect! I was thinking "collegiate" when I first saw the card--I think your SIL will love it!!

A fantastic man card, Bonnie! That wolf is great surrounded by the red! So...if SIL is son-in-law, what is sister-in-law?

Benzi said...

I think you're right, Bonnie. Your SIL is sure to think this is a winner. Clever idea for the masculine card.

Brenda said...

Love your take on the sketch and the use of the mascot is a wonderful idea. This is a perfect masculine card.

Trust Darnell to start asking awkward questions! This wolf is a marvellous stamp and he looks great with the red panels.

"Perfect" really is the word for this!! Love the red with this image, Bonnie! SO pretty!
I have so many favorite images from SU and this ranks right up there with them. Love this set - and especially this image!
Fantastic card!

Bonnie, this is crisp, clean and a perfect masculine themed card. What a wonderful idea to use your SIL's school mascot, too. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
