Buttons and string!

Hello again crafters,

This is a card I made for a man's Birthday - I always find male cards so hard to do!  I heard someone say once that when you make a male card, swap the flowers for buttons and swap ribbon for string, so that's what I try and do!  The papers are from Hot Off The Press and I coloured the image with my Promarkers.  I used my PC to create the text and added a few extra truffles here and there.
I would like to enter my card in the Passion for ProMarkers challenge which is "button it up".
Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Karen xx

Hi Crafters

I made this Welsh card for a friend's 40th Birthday and used my new favourite colour - aqua!  I had some WOC roses that I've been trying to use on my cards for ages and with the bath, I just thought this colour would be perfect!  I've used my First Edition papers 'Isabelle' and a digi image called 'Alyssa relaxing' from Digi Stamp Boutique.  I found a heart pin which was a perfect match, the charm is a make up bag and the leaves are a cheery lynn die.  I added stickles to the bubbles to finish it off!
I'm entering this card in the I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge - What's your favourite colour?
Thanks for looking
Hugs, Karen xx
