A Bit of Masculinity with out the Fish!!!!

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
I needed to make a male Birthday card for my boss, so here is what I came up with. He likes, history of locations hence the stamps on the bunting and the clock charm and vintage car.


The base colour is chocolate brown card as is the contrast.  The papers are from Grimsby Crafts.  The image is Stampin with the Dragon.  Lace from stash as is the charm.  The bunting and postcard are cut from the papers used which was a 12 x 12 and this card is an 8 x 8 inch square.  Ready for all those work signatures.

As always, I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for the lovely and inspirational comments you leave, which allows me to hop on over in return to see your own lovely work and welcome to my new followers. 


I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Digi Stamps for Joy - Anything Goes extra for masculine
The Paper Shelter - Charm
Anything Goes Challenge - Make your own embellishments
Card Mania - Happy Birthday
Creative Cards - cards for men

hugs

Just yesterday we got an invitation to a surprise birthday party for a friend who's turning 85 years young, and this card has given me the inspiration to make his card! It's just incredibly crafted and so perfect for an elderly gentleman! Well done, I love that image and how it looks colored with blue!
