Male birthday card

I used the sketch at 2 Sketches 4 you this week to make a birthday for my father-in-law.  It is really difficult to make a card for a man!   No flowers, to cutsie animals, what to do! 

I decided to use a dark patterned paper and a coordinating light blue paper from My Minds Eye.  Also used a brown scrap and Martha Stewart botanical punch.  Then I paired it with an olive green ribbon that corresponded to the color in the paper.  I used two cuts from the Storybook Cricut Cartridge to frame the sentiment.

I finished off the inside with more patterned paper and botanical punch.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for your kind comments and feedback!
