Male Birthday Card

I don't know if any of you all are like me, but I really struggle with male cards! You wouldn't think I would since I live in a house that is dominated by all males.  When every one was home it was 7 males to 1 female, me. So why do I struggle with male cards???  I think I got a pretty good one this time around.  This is for my son who turned 29 the day after 9/11.  Yes, I am late getting it to him because I knew we would be going up to see our newest grandson, so it will go up with all the other goodies we have for them.  DIL's birthday was the day after our grandson was born, so everything is going up at once. LOL I used the lite Cricut cart Dude and Graphically Speaking for this card as well as the diamond plate embossing folder.  I decided to do a twisted easel card since I'd never done one for the guys, my only wish was that I picked black for the base instead of white.  Oh well.  It took me forever to get this motor bike guy figured out and many cuts later I got it.  It wasn't the booklet, it was my brain just wasn't registering it.  I get like that when the Lupus is active.  I had to also increase in size "enjoy the ride" for it to cut right.  Nothing fancy about this card, but I hope it screams masculinity!  Thanks for all your lovely comments, they make my day!!
