Woven Background Birthday Card

I tried my hand at weaving a paper background, like this card by Kristina Werner on the Simon Says Stamp blog.

I put together this card for a birthday party we went to over the weekend, and the colors for this week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays worked out well for a masculine card. I also added a layer of vellum to tone down the background.

We didn't stay for the whole party, but we were there long enough for the surprise part of it, which was fun to watch because the family had done a pretty good job of hiding the big shindig from the dad (who was turning 60). A whole bunch of out-of-town relatives even flew in for party.
