Take 3

I'm not willing to share the first two versions of this card, but needless to say this was the third attempt at a 50th birthday card for my boss.

Very unlike me, I'd left making it to the last minute.

Ok ok, just like usual, I'd left it to the last minute.

So I was making this the night before I needed to give it to him.  After several failed attempts at 'no image / just dies' cards, I remembered he likes cricket, which meant I could use an image after all!  :0)

I'm just not good at masculine cards.

Why, oh why, can't men like pink and glitter and flowers?

This is such a lovely card-men's cards are definitely not as easy as the girly ones but you've done a fab job here x
