Happy 50th Male Birthday

Good morning to you all

I was asked to create a 50th Birthday card for a brother from one of my regular customers, the brief was cars, bikes, computers, hockey any of. So here is what I came up with


I just wanted to use bold striking colours and the silver


So using red as my contrast, I used one of my embossing folders on black card to create the first layer and then used the silver and my other embossing folder to create the birthday stripes.  I wrapped some ribbon under the panels and used my grand nesties to cut out one white circle and the matching red scallop.  This was after I had found this wonderful silhouette image on my silhouette store, which I cut out in black.  I also cut from the silhouette store the 50 and then stamped with the sentiments before adding a few red pearls lots of black ones which I coloured with my copics and the red rhinestone sparkler

Love how it turned out considering I don't do masculine that well.

I would like to say hello to all my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

Don't forget it is the last few days for my candy in the side bar, would hate for you to miss out :)

hugs

This is a really great masculine design, Kate! The red and silver makes the card look less dark and are nice constrasts to the black. I'm sure your customer will love this one!
