A La Card Monkey Challenge #57 meets PPC #59

I had a workshop the other evening and it was SO fun to be back in my studio ~ so I was hunting around for a challenge to enter this morning and found two that would be perfect for a masculine Birthday Card.
Here's a peek at the two challenges that I brought together!
A La Card Monkey was a birthday challenge ~ PERFECT!!!

and now the hunt for the colors that I needed to go with the stamp set that I had in mind....
....Perfect Picture Creations #59 ~ Perfect Once Again!!!

So while everything seemed to be going Perfect, why not take a picture of my creation
outside on this Perfectly Beautiful Day! Here is one of the 'rock features' that Dean has created in our
yard and again....a Perfect place to take a picture

And so, without any further ado and is my masculine Birthday Card!
