for a great guy…

Hello, how are you today?
Today I would love to show you a card, dear Pamela asked me to make for her husband. She loved Lili of the Valley’s aero plane image for a possible birthday card for her husband.

At first I was a bit hesitant to use flowers on a guy card, but Pamela assured me that it would be okay.. I thought the criss cross style pocket card would be a great solution to make it a bit more manly and also the use of those pretty new My Minds Eye paper. They gave me quite some choices on colors to use.

These are some of the supplies I used to make the card
Size: 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches – I found 6x6 a bit too large for the size of image
Sentiment: Stempelglede and Papertrey ink for ticket sentiment and ticket border die
Dies: Spellbinder lacy circle, Stampin up punch (to make the tabs), Stampin up ribbon, pearl brads, Memento ink, Walnut Stain, cheese cloth, Tim Holtz film strip

Off to get some stuff in the house done.. iam expecting my family in law to arrive this afternoonSmile
hugs
Claudia
