Water / Male Birthday


Hi,

It seems ages since I wrote anything on here,  we had a brilliant holiday and I have some brilliant photos to share,   unfortunately I came home with a cold/flu virus whatever and I have been really poorly with it.   Anyway yesterday I put my best foot forward and made this card for two challenges.
The card was made from CD Klever Konstruction on the shelf, once in a lifetime volume one,  this is from the toppers selection,   I wanted something different and I found this one,  I think its fits the water challenge perfectly and also fits in with the CD Sunday challenge of Male birthday.
I used the water paper on the base of the easel card, and the main image on the top half of the card,  matted it onto blue card and added the same blue card on the base to say Happy Birthday with gold peel off's and finished off the card with gold peel off bits, and a blue bow.

Side view of card,  unfortunately the light changed the blue a bit sorry.

I am entering this card into the CD Sunday Challenge,  male birthday and Cardz 4 Guyz challenge water.

I hope you are all keeping well,

                      Hugs
                  Margaret

  12. You did 'keep in touch' with your pre-scheduled posts, which were nice to read.

    Wonderful idea for a card for a male - the image, stand-up frame idea, and simple sentiment. I'm always impressed that you manage to be creative even when feeling unwell. Hope you feel better soon! Glad you enjoyed your holiday!

  18. What an impressive card!
    By the way, I would not mind receiving it for my birthday. Why should girls Always receive cats with pink bows and cupcakes. I like boats!
