A Man's Card At Last!

I have really been struggling to make some Male birthday cards for a recent order but today I have actually started & made a couple! I don't like making men's cards cos you can't really use flowers,flourishes, glitter etc & as you can see this card is very plain lol The gorgeous pearlised papers are by the Crafts House, I used a silhouetted image of boys fishing which I inked the edges of & finished the card off with ribbon, some pearls I coloured with my ProMarkers to match & a gold greeting from Craftwork Cards.

I'm entering this card for 3 challenges:
Papertake - Sketch
Rosie-D's- Just For Men
Secret Crafter - Monochrome

I can't believe we've got snow AGAIN, I hope we're in for a really hot summer to make up for it lol at least it's my day off & I haven't got to go out today but better get on with some housework now :-(
