Cards for Men!

They are so awkward in soo many ways lol (buying presents & making cards for are just 2 of them). I have my youngest son Stuart & my Father-in-Law's birthdays both on the 28th July.

The first card made for FIL is made using Hot off the Press papers, image from Sally-Ann, coloured in with Prismacolors & finished off with some peel-offs & liquid pearls. The fab sketch is from Carol's Sketch Fun.

The card I made for Stuart was made with a fee monkey image from Dustin Pike, coloured in with Prismacolours, the papers are Papermania & the card is finished off with a printed greeting, some brads & stars with glossy accents. The card didn't look much like a birthday card so I added a party hat to the monkey lol. This card fits 4 challenges:-
Lili of the Valley - Animals
Charisma Cardz - Sketch
One Stop - Good Sense of Humour
The Pink Elephant - Animals
