Upcycled birthday card

Recently I have tried to do more upcycling than previously.  I have reached the point where I really must do something about that stack of cards I intend to use some day...!!!  I also need to use my stash of supplies, stamps, etc - if I make 500 cards a month I might make a dent! (Just kidding, of course!  These days, I am lucky to get a dozen or so a month.)   Here I have used a lovely image from a card - one of the few I have suitable for a guy!  I added the stamped sentiment, and used Spellbinders Labels 1 dies for the image, and sticker strips for the edging.
Sketch:  Inspire Create
Upcycle:  Shopping our Stash
Birthday card:   Cutitup
CAS:   a2z scrapbooking 
Dies:   Crafty Sentiments.
Any:   Lemon shortbread

Way to use your stack of cards!!! I have them to, and I usually forget about them, though I always add to the stack! Great idea to make masculine cards with them (I'm not great at masculine cards... this would be helpful!) Thanks for sharing at SOS last challenge.
