Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Male card - No Blue

The challenge this week at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is to do a man's card without any blue, which was a bit tricky for me as I don't really have any dp with a male theme/colour scheme (shall put it on my shopping list). I always make girly cards, and whenever there's a male birthday I struggle cos' somehow I don't think pink or lilac is appropriate! So I used red and silver and ran the silver mirri card through my Cuttlebug. The card is for my father-in-law's birthday next week, he's french so hope he likes it. It reads "to your health...Happy Birthday"...



I used:
Penny Black 12 days of Christmas clear set
Watercolour Paints
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Swiss Dots
Black & White paper from Pink Petticoat CD
Text was hand written using Whispers marker fine tip
Ribbon, buttons etc from stash

Thanks for dropping in, I really value all your comments!
