Happy Birthday Step Dad

Good morning to you all

The first thing I need to do today is wish my beloved and very special Matt a Happy Birthday, as I type this without him knowing about it, he sits opposite me smiling away at the computer on his desk, but know he will check my post :)

So this card is the card I made at the request of my son for him


I normally struggle with masculine cards but loved making this one, hope he likes it


I treated myself to a new embossing folder and I also got some guilding wax, so I found this fabulous turquoise blue card and got to work.  You can just see the raised areas with the guilding wax on them.  I used black as the contrast.  I found my garden twine stuff and ran a layer across the card, placed some turquoise ribbon from my stash on top of this before adding the image plate and image.  I finished off with some black buttons and two black pins.

Here is the closeup of the image coloured in copics

I would like to take a moment to say hello to all my new followers and thank all of my visitors for their wonderful comments, which allows me to hop over and visit you in return.

Don't forget I still have candy on offer, the last few days, see the sidebar :)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges
