Take a Spin!!!

Hello Friends!!
Welcome new followers and thank you for deciding to follow my blog and I hope you get some inspiration along the way.  Today I made a birthday card for my little brother's birthday this coming weekend.  I always have such a hard time making a manly/masculine card what about you guys?  I think he will get a kick out of this card though and well, I was dying to try this stamp set!! I used the Take a Spin clear stamp set #122015 and added the game spinners #121893.  I wanted to make something different than my usual A2 size cards so I went with a easel card.  This is the second one under my belt LOL!!! I kept the card simple and bright.  I love this texturz Plate from the Backgrounds #1 item #114512 this particular plate is called the Harlequin.  I hope you enjoy it and thank you so much for stopping by.
