Tropical Chic Masculine Birthday Card

When I came up with the idea for this card I wanted to focus my card on the leaves. It's easy to make the main focal point of a card flowers and have the leaves in the background. But I wanted it to stand out on my card. 

My idea was to incorporate a masculine card into the mix of the Tropical Chic Suite. I thought of my uncle when I finished this card. He passed away a few years back but he was best known for his Hawaiian theme shirts. That's all he ever wore. 

So my focus was on the leaves and to bring out the rich greens and make them pop. This card I can see going to a older man celebrating a milestone birthday. And it would be much appreciated. 

Card Base  11 x 4 1/4
score 5 1/2
Shaded Spruce  4 1/8 x 5 3/8
Whisper White (2)  4 x 5 1/4
Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green scraps for the Happy Birthday die

Hope you enjoyed!
