Man's card?


What do you think? I made this card for a (man) friend of ours whose birthday is tomorrow, Dec. 6. It has a little sparkle because I couldn't resist! I tried to use manly colors to match the Wanted dp from Stampin' Up and Cosmo Cricket. I'm going with it because it's the last minute and I don't have time for another! I kind of like how it turned out, too.
I used Sage, Rust and Chocolate from SU! and Papertrey Ink White select cardstock to stamp and color. I used Copic markers to color this adorable Cupcake Mouse from Whipper Snapper designs. I have had him a LONG time and had never inked him up! Poor little guy!
There is some sponged ink around the image that is mostly soft sky and baja breeze. I grabbed a dirty sponge from my table and didn't even need the ink pad! LOL!
Please stop by my friend, Lisa's blog, Kind Creations. She is lakind on SCS. She has some great blog candy ready to go because she has reached 10,000 hits! Way to go, Lisa! You have such a "classy" blog. Here's the link:

This is darling! I think any handmade card is too nice for a man...they just don't appreciate it...unless it was made from wood and duct tape!
