A Birthday card for Mark....

Hi Susan here....

Over at The Crazy Challenge we have started another challenge for you to join in with.....the theme is 'No Ribbons or Buttons'. Our sponsor is the fabulous Sassy Studio. Check out The Crazy Challenge blog for full details of the challenge.

My son-in-law Marks birthday was last week and I wanted to make him a special cheeky card, because he is very special to us and a bit cheeky on the side!!!!.... I came up with this.

I used backing papers from a 12/12 HOTP pad called 'Boys to Men'. I love these papers they colours and designs are perfect. All edges have been distressed.

This cheeky image is from Sassy Studios and is called 'Alice in Sassy Land'. I used Pro-Markers to colour her in and then gently inked the background.

My sentiment was made on the computer, the little flower I found in the bottom of our stash drawer!!!!

The challenge is no ribbons - so I used embroidery thread to tie up the card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
