21st Boys Birthday Card

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
I was asked at short notice if I could create a 21st Birthday card for a male.  Oh my!!!! not my usual thing as you know it is so hard to create a card that does not contain flowers lol xx

So a while back I had purchased a Making Cards magazine for the male papers, so I had a quick flick through this got an idea and quickly produced this little number, thank  you to the ladies at Making Cards for their inspiration.
I love the colour scheme, just perfect I thought.
The image and the papers were out of the magazine, the Happy Birthday wording is black peel off's (oh I know, but I sometimes think they are so useful) The Red Letters are from my 12 x 12 alph/numberic sheet coloured with R39 and the little starts are actually bling stars, placed on upside down to match the silver mirror card base colour. Not bad for a 20 minute card.  My son says it is great and the person will love it.  Phew one male card down and two to go.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
Crafty Card Makers - Anything Goes
The Crafty Pad - One for the Boys
Penny's Paper Crafting - Anything Goes
Ruby's Rainbow - for a boy
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Well off to colour up my next image, a fabulous new one from Make it Crafty, cannot wait
Enjoy the rest of your evening
Hugs Kate xxx
