Happy 65!

My card today is for the Bellarific Friday challenge - a masculine or a Father's day card. I've made this card for a family friend's husband who's turning 65 very soon. I love this image by Mo Manning, and have a blast every time I colour it! I always find it challenging to make masculine cards because I like using embellishments, but it's kind of hard to use pearls and flowers on a card for a man, isn't it? I try to play with colour as much as I can, and use less restrictive embellies, like leaves and ribbons to add a bit of interest to a masculine card. Hope you enjoy it! And thank you for stopping by!!!

  2. Sorry I missed this Olga - it's fantastic! The shading is so realistic...Love it! I too find it hard to embellish masculine cards but the leaves and ribbon here are nice additions.
