Masculine Birthday Wishes

Hello Blog Friends - today I am sharing a 'dreaded man card', made for someone special.  If you are anything like me I tend to create feminine cards -  so this is a change of pace for me.

I have used a retired Stampin' Up! image that has been coloured using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink Markers

The coloured image has been cut/embossed using the Gold Majesty Circles Spellbinders® Imperial Gold die template has been sponged using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Delicata™ Pigment Ink in Golden Glitz.  All dies have been cut using the  Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.

The coloured image has been cut using the Postage Stamps Spellbinders® Nestabilities and sponged Delicata in Golden Glitz and sponge daubers - using the Die as a Stencil.  This has been layered onto the Gold Majesty Circles using Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares.  The background paper is Authentique™ Paper - Seasons Collection.  The sentiment is from Clear Stamps, a recycled button has been added, along with one Want2Scrap Baby Bling.

This card is for the following challenges: 
Crafting By Designs - Anything Goes
Frilly and Funkie - Father's Day/Special man
