Birthday pop up

We are heading out my BIL's today and I was just told it was his birthday 2 weeks ago (10th!). OMG
I must make a birthday book to remember all these birthdays! So after a meeting I had tonight I had to try and make a masculine card.

Here is what i came up and finished at midnight, too tired to post then I am posting now....
Stamp image is from Inkandinkado Illuminata. I used SU ink and ribbon Wild Wasabi on cream colored paper. I wanted something different so I used the highlighted method as seen in the rust colored circles cut from my Coluzzle.

Inside I did a pop up - also stamped in my stash from SU! And ran an embossed border from the clocks Cuttlebug folder
I smashed a bottle cap in my Cuttlebug and proceeded to die cut a circle from my Cuttlebug and stamp a little candle on it. It is suspended off the ribbon by 28 gauge wire.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Priscillas styles - use Layout
Fabulous Friday's use metal
Cuttlebug spot pop it up
Kaboodle Doodle - a fold we have not used in awhile
Simon Says - Coffee and cream color theme
Tuesday Throwdown - a 3D creation (Thanks coach fan!)

Cute card. Great idea about smashing a bottle cap, I may have to try that

I plan on working on a pop-up this weekend. Did you see that Tuesday Throwdown was 3-D?
