Happy Birthday Mark

I've got a "Just for Fun" post today as it's my brother-in-law's birthday, so I'm sharing the card I made for him.  I was under strict instruction from hubby that it was to contain 'no cute images' (he spoils all my fun!), so I went with a completely clean and simple design with a touch of blue, for a masculine feel.

I die cut the sentiment twice (one in white and one in blue), and embossed the white layer for some definition from the white background.  I matted the white embossed sentiment over a blue one which just gave it a bit of colour from the side.  I added a few pearls (yes I know they're a bit girlie, but I couldn't not add anything, could I?).

This card has gotta be right up there at the top of my C&S list, so I'm off to lie down & recover from a serious case of EWS (Embellishment Withdrawal Syndrome).
