21st Male Birthday Card

Hi all
Well, we are half way through a lovely week.  I am really busy at work but just managing to keep on top of it all.  I am really enjoying coming home to take myself away from it all relaxing and crafting in my "beach hut".

I received such a warm welcome from the Winter Wonderland Challenge Teamies and I am looking forward to my first challenge post with them all.

I have needed to move all those challenges to my separate page to make room for some new stuff and to introduce you to the rest of the Winter Wonderland Santa's helpers.

I would like to say a warm welcome to my new followers on my little bit of blog land, 2 hidden and Marianne, AnneMariesinfield, Lynda and Mandy.

Anyway at the weekend I have been invited to a 21st Birthday Bash along with my DH Matt and my son and his girlfriend and I am looking forward to attending.  So I needed to create a card for him.  Looking for some inspiration through the challenges and came across a lovely sketch on Mojo Monday Challenge Blog.

So entering this card into 

The Pixie Cottage Challenge 11 - The colour green - I have used green on the image and love the Pixie Cottage Challenge

The Creative Card Crew Challenge 46 - Going Dotty - I have used my black and white dotty paper and lots of dotty pearls

Cards for Men Challenge 6 - Happy Birthday - A very special 21st Happy Birthday

The Cupcake Craft Challenge 82 - Going Green - again this is another of my favorite challenges and had to add green to my image to enable me to enter.

My inspiration from Mojo Monday Challenge 130 - a lovely sketch which I turned on it's side

Think that is about it.  So here is the card

Using some holographic silver foil card as the base layered with some Docrafts "Papermania" Capsule Collection, Mono Paper Pack by Tina Higgins and using a computer generated sentiment and a Sugar Nellie "To Catch a Big Fish" stamp (he is into his fishing as are the rest of the lads).  Papers and ribbon from Tilly's and pearls from Hobby House (see where I shop above).

Here is the image
Coloured with copics and on manga art board and don't those pearls large and small frame the nestie scallop so well.  I adore pearls.

Well I am going to have my tea - prepared by my son Pasta Bake mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, then I am going to have a lovely relaxing bath and catch up on my Australian Masterchef programmes, might have to find some chocolate too :)))

cya all again at the weekend

Hugs Kate xx
