Mans World take 2....

Thought I'd throw my hat in to the ring again over at with another card for "it's a Mans World" Diva Dare for June.

I had to make 4 cards recently for the same man who will be turning 70 in a day or so and I found myself using another Verve Plain Jane stamp (I am loving these stamps right now) so thought I'd give it a try over on their blog.

This is a white tent fold card today as it gave me more room to play with. I took a sheet of Nitwits paper (which came free with a magazine) and ran it through a embossing folder with sprigs and ditsy flowers on, I matted it on to silver mirri card and used foam pads to add it to the card base. The image is some decoupage I had in (he loves his garden to sit in and a glass of wine) which I mounted on to some soft green card. I printed out the special friend sentiment but the Happy Birthday is from Verve Stamps. I cut the 70 using my Cricut which is shadowed in silver mirri too. A few gems to the flowers and a little ribbon and job done.

Thanks for looking in today.
