Blue Maple Leaf Birthday

I have one last birthday card from 2013 to share. 
My husband is a fan of the Toronto Maple Leaf hockey team. 
He looks forward to the fall, when the teams are back on the ice. 
So ... I always try to incorporate something blue and 'leafy' in his cards!!
Card Front - 
* I stamped the veins of the leaf (Leaf Prints) onto Stamper's White Select card stock with Versamark ink; then heat emnbossed it with white embossing powder. 
* The main leaf image and sentiment (Birthday Style) were stamped with blue ink. Moonstruck (Close to My Heart) 
* The card front was impressed with the Stitching Impression Plate; Fine Linen ink was rubbed over the front to give an aged look.
* Three blue dots (Stamping Bella) accent one corner of the card front. 

Card Interior
A sentiment (Movers & Shakers Sentiments) and 
a blue leaf complete the inside of the card.
