Male card

I remembered only this morning about my friend's birthday on Thursday! Doh!
Because he lives in Amsterdam and the card needed to be on the post by this afternoon the latest, I momentarily got into a bit of a panic - the job could have ended in disaster with all the rush; however, I must admit I am pretty happy with the result. I actually feel it is a double winner: a quick AND a male card that I am satisfied with!? It must be a first ;-)
I think the reason why I feel so comfortable with the result is because of the great TLC image and sentiment I decided to use. Make sure you visit Paulette's wonderful blog, Create with TLC - she has LOTS of beautiful, funny and vintage images and sentiments, many for free!!
It is yet another CAS card, by far my favourite style; the lovely stripe paper, distressed, was a present from my good friend (non-blogger) Christine; the blue and green cardstock are from my own stash, as is the blue ribbon; image coloured with Letraset Promarkers, mounted on 3D pads and highlighted with embossing fluid for a bit of dimension.

There are a couple of challenges I can enter this card onto:
I used the Paper Tree Design sketch for this week; on Crazy 4 Challenges they are looking for Square cards and the ladies on Ladybug Crafts Ink want to see ribbon.

So that's it for me for today! Wrap up well! It's cold and windy out there! :-)
Thanks for your comments!
