Happy "50th" masculine B-Day card

Hello friends!!  It's not every day or even every month for that matter, that I make a masculine card.  They challenge me to no end.  I like frills and fluff... so had to put my thinking cap on for this one.
My Mom needed a Poker/Casino type themed card for a friend that is turning the big 50!  I think I pretty much love how this turned out.  These ideas come to me in my sleep.  Go figure.  I could be thinking of worse things.  :)

So... most of the products used here are from Stampin' Up.  Cardstock, border punch, circle punch, "rectangle" hand held punch, white gel pen, real red marker and the Birthday sentiment.
The "50" are stickers from my stash and the card image is from google images.  :)  Gotta love the internet and a printer.  I did make that Poker Chip with my own 2 hands.  White and Red circle punch overlapped on each other with thin white gel pen lines in the center and the thicker white dashes are and OLD retired hand held punch from SU.

I used the MOJO Monday 348 sketch for my inspiration.
It's a contest this week as well.  :)

And I would also like to enter my card into "Splendiferous Creations" Blogger challenge. 
The challenge is to make a "MASCULINE" card.  
Yep... my challenge alright.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'll be seeing you all a little more often these days, my crafty to do list is quite large.
Happy day to all of you.

Awesome card! I once laid out a card hand and scanned it and played around with it to make it an embellishment. Computers definitely can be very helpful while creating. Very nicely done!
