Masculine Card Series #3 CAS Birthday Card

I am sorry for the "Early" post on this weeks Masculine Card but this weekend is going to be very busy and since today is National Scrapbooking day, I wanted to do it today.
For today's Masculine Card decided to go with a very quick and simple card.  We all know that sometimes "we forget" to get a card ready until it's too late and you're just about to head out the door.  I made 6 of these cards in less than 1/2 hour.  The longest thing was cutting the paper believe it or not.
The card base measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" cut the long way.  The red mat measures 5 1/4" x 4".  Both the blue card base and the red mat come from Jewel Recollections cardstock pack.  The patterned paper mat measures 5" x 3 3/4" and is called Ranch Strips by Chatterbox.  
The sentiment strip measures 3 3/4" x 1 3/4" (Red) and 3 3/4" 1 1/2" for the Kraft paper.
The sentiment is by Studio G, the inside sentiment is by Stampin' Up and both were stamped using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
I added 3 or 2 buttons on each card, depending on where I stamped the sentiment.
As I said, quick, simple but totally Male....
I entered this card in the following challenges:
