Daring Cardmakers - Just Magnolia - Simon Says - Challenges

Wooohooo.. three challenges in one...

Ok.. here goes...

It is my father's birthday soon... so thought what better way that to try and do a male card and combine the three challenges!

This is a 18 cm square card with half the front cut off.  I put some glitter embossing on the paper at the front of the card to give it texture and sparkle!  The "Dad" paper on the side I made by stamping.. yes Dad.. all over it in black and silver.

I used my newest punch on the corners where I could.  I water-coloured the little boy in and gave him a glittering balloon.  I did glitter his laces and buttons.

Finished it off with a line of three bows and a silver peg.. of course I added some more glitter dots around the black card I made... Oh and I did stamp the envelope to match and the insert - I have used the punch too!.  I didn't want to go to over the top as after all it is for my strong masculine father lol!

Daring Cardmakers - Fridays -  These is to use your latest punch-- used on the corners

Just Magnolia - Fridays - Monochrome.. and to me that is black and white.. well I have gone near as I could.

Simon Says -  Mondays - Sparkle.... well I have put that in too.
