Uncharted Territory Masculine Birthday card

This is a masculine card I made for my son's 16th birthday.  He loved it. I knew I would get a lot of use out of the Outdoor Man Cricut cartridge.

The inside:

I have the funniest story about this arrow.  I wanted to use this die this past weekend.  I couldn't find it.  I have my movers and shapers stuck to the inside of my die cart.  It wasn't there.  Hmmm, I thought it was so small maybe I knocked it outside of the cart.  I cleaned all around on the floor.  I emptied all nearby containers in case it fell inside.  I did find a thin die I knew had flipped off my magnet lined over the door cabinet.  That was a plus, but still did not find this arrow!  I cleaned all under a table, I pulled out bins and tubs.  I wanted to make sure it didn't fall behind in the old location of the mover and shapers.  I knew I had used it since I organized my die cutting cart!  I managed to find an arrow punch for my project but I was completely disturbed that I could NOT find this arrow. Finally, I adjourned to bed and my laptop to work on blog post. Tada!  I am planning this post and I used this arrow!  I knew immediately where it was!  I ran upstairs to my check and sure enough, the die was still stuck in the middle of this die!!!  At least I found it in one day?!

Here is a picture of the organized die cut cart.  I covered it with duct tape.
