Birthday Boy

Hi everyone.  quite a grey day here today but the snowdrops are coming through so spring must be on it's way!  The card I'm sharing with you today is created with a Molly Blooms free stamp which came with my craft magazine.  I'm a fan of Molly Blooms and I think this image of George is really cute.  The bunting is also a Molly Blooms stamp.  I coloured the images with Copics and used a blue ink pad around the edges.  The dotted scallop edge was created using a Fiskers border punch.  The present is cut from Cricut Celebrations cartridge.  I wrote on the tag as I didn't have a stamp small enough. The papers, card and buttons are from stash.   I'm entering this into this weeks Allsorts Challenge Blog and Cards for Men Let's Party challenge.  Hope you like!

Cards for Men Challenge

Hi All.  What awful weather today, it's dark and rainy and cold - just the sort of day for making some cards and having a bit of a blog.  This card I've made for my dear old dad who is 88 years young next Wednesday and I'm also entering it for this weeks' Cards for Men Challenge which is a sketch challange.  The image and the background papers are from the Joanna Sheen CD - Eastern Treasures.  The grey oval I cut using my Cricut 'George and Basic Shapes' and then I ran this through a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I distressed the grey card edges with a Tim Holtz distress tool and used a computer generated greeting, ( I downloaded a free font as I wanted something Oriental), and then threaded some red ribbon through the coins and attached to the card with sticky dots.  Hope you like!  Linda x
