Seize the Birthday - a card for a male this week

This week's challenge over at Seize the Birthday follows the same sketch as last week, which was for a female's card - this is my take on the sketch:
And this is the sketch:
I used:

- A6 cream card stock

- SU's 'Bashful Blue' card

- paper from the Bo Bunny 'Barefoot and Bliss' collection

- decoupaged image and sentiment - another one from The Range. No manufacturer's name but the set is called 'Male Icons' - brilliant value too

Crumbs, blogger is playing up as I'm writing/scheduling this on Sunday - jumping round all over the place and making my eyes whizz round and round like Ferris Wheels :( I feel quite car sick, excuse me - must dash :( 



  1. fantastic masculine card! thanks for playing along at Seize the Birthday!

  2. Great guy card...love the gardening theme!

    DH has taken over the gardening for the last 4 years and although he doesn't love it, he has grown to like parts of it...I think if our garden wqas smaller he would like it even more!!! teeehee

    Great card!

  9. Lovely card. I do like gardening cards, and I really like the font on the sentiment. Isn't it great when you can drop another masculine card into that stash box. Lynn x

    [passing along the bag in case blogger starts acting up again }
