A Man's Birthday....

Hi Susan here.....

At The Stamping Bazaar a new challenge has started today and the theme is:
For full details of the challenge and to get some fabulous inspiration from the design team call across to The Stamping Bazaar and join in the fun with us.

For my card, I wanted to do a man's birthday card with a different fold for a change, my backing papers are all from our stash and they have been distressed using Tim Holtz distressing inks. The base card is from The Paper Mill Shop.

Sorry this photo is a little blurred, don't understand why.......this is just to show you the fabulous sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs on the inside.

This fabulous image has been designed by our very talented Marina Neira and is available from The Stamping Bazaar Store, he is called 'Bikkie the Platypus'. I have used Promarkers to colour him.

My sentiments are designed by Ann Vento and are available from Raindrop Echo Designs. I aged them with distressing inks. 

Challenges I am entering

Thanks for looking at my card and for your wonderful comments.
Love Susan
