Cards For Men 6th challenge - happy birthday



A nice simple theme for you for this fortnight's Cards For Men challenge, it's simply 'happy birthday' - so you can enter any male birthday card. We're sponsored this time by Roberta from Prairie Fairy - I'm lucky enough to be on her design team and her digi stamps are really lovely, and you could win 3 of them :o)

I've used one of the images from the Cuppycakes set - this wasn't how I originally planned the image to look! I tried to glaze and glitter the image but the lines went all blurry and it just looked terrible, so I printed it off again onto orange cardstock, cut out the top of the cake and layered it up instead. I've added a bit of glamour dust to the stars on the cake.... I'm not happy with it though, doesn't look quite right to me! The papers are MME, cardstock is a mix of DCWV and some green pearlised card from my stash. I embossed a piece of the green card with the cuttlebug spots and dots folder, added some stars (cut with nesties), MME buttons and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

Today is my first visit to your page and I love this card, love the colors, the stars, the embossed strip of paper, the buttons, the paper....lovely!. I started making cards about 9 months ago and I'm always looking for inspiration and new techniques.
I am addicted to cardmaking I have to admit it ..I have ran out of people to send cards to but I keep making them.
I will keep coming back
Thanks for sharing ..... Maria L. (Canada)
