Here's one I made earlier!

Just thought I'd share with you the card I made for my Brother's 40th birthday last week. As you know I find it tricky to make masculine cards, I always find an overwhelming urge to use flowers and add lots of sparkle!
At first I was stumped with a creative mind-block but fortunately Kate saved the day! This image she stamped for me is perfect for any blokey card! Lucky for me, the image actually does remind me of my brother (though I'd have to add a few wrinkles now - hee hee!)

Apologies for the random background of the card - I actually forgot to take a pic of this before I handed it over! I had to sneak a snap of it at his birthday celebrations so it was standing along with his other cards too. My brother thought I was a nutter, taking pictures of a card - I guess he just isn't on my creative wavelength LOL!

He liked the card, commenting that image definitely reminded him of when he was younger! He's starting to get very nostalgic now - Bless!
