Fabulous Friday - Birthday Wishes - it's a man thing!

Hellooo!!  Seems this week has just gone!

I didn't get time to do a What's new Wednesday and then I was going to make it Thursday - but hey life got in the way for a little while :-)

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Polkadoodles, it's a really easy one - Birthday's!

It's someones birthday every day of the year, and I know you all have cards to make - so get making :-)

I decided to get ahead and make Andy's birthday card for May - at least I then know it's done.  I used the pre-coloured images of Winston off one of the Design sheets.

Another Z fold card, seems to be a goodie to go to at them moment.  So easy! Take a pre-folded card, this is 6.5" by 5" and fold the top half in half LOL!.  That is it, then add your panels.

As you can see I layered up Winston in his fishing boat.  Added a little bit of black cotton for the fishing line, and a little Glossy Accents to the fish bait.

I love inking the edges of the layers and the image layers with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink, so much so that I have to go buy a re-inker for it :-)

For the inside I added a message panel and layered up the papers, and added some paper buttons too.

This would also make a good retirement card, I think.  Long way off for Andy yet LOL!

I have been thoroughly enjoying the decoupage layers lately.  Takes a little time but the finished result is so wonderful.

So, now you go off and get some birthday card's made and come along and enter our Birthday's challenge.  You have until the 27th March to enter and remember you do not need to use Polkadoodles products to enter our challenges.  You could win the whole download bundle of the fabulous new Eden collection.
