Rosette Birthday card

Hello everyone, I have another Mojo Monday sketch challenge card to share with you today.  As I have said I love to play along when I can, also I have a hard time making card without following a sketch :/.
This is a larger card, an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper folded in half.  I enjoy making these larger cards because you have more room for things, plus your cuts do not have to be so small.  The happy birthday is stamped using a Mark's Finest stamp. 
The patterned paper is from K&Company Best of K&Company stack. All the plain papers are shimmery and pearl like.
The rosette is cut from the CTMH Artiste cartridge, out of the same paper used at the top.  I added a button to the center.  I tried so hard to keep this a card so that it can be used for a male.  They are sometimes so hard to make and I do not have many in my stash.  I added some swirls I cut using Home Decor cartridge, out of the same shimmery paper.  I hope with the swirls and fancy paper that it is not too girly for a guy.
Well thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my card, I would love to hear what you think.

Great papers. I think the swirls are just right. Great for a guy, too.

Great looking card, with the muted colours I think you can use it for a guy.

Awesome card! I like that you enlarged your "canvas" so to speak. Your rosette fits so well on this larger size. Elegant papers too.

This is a lovely card, great use of the sketch. You are so right about guy cards but I think a swirls works well for them too.
