Birthday Showers

Hello friends - I enjoyed a little time in The Studio and in an attempt to clear away the some of the layers (and there were many) on my desk - I ended up creating this masculine card - yes the 'dreaded man card!'.  I do love the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man and had an embossed image which I sponged over using Imagine Memento Ink in Desert Sand and Summer Sky.

The sentiment is from a Penny Black Inc. set. I have stamped it using Imagine Memento ink Rhubarb Stalk.  The tag has been adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Adhesive Runner,  tabs and a button have been added to the card front and a ticket stub popped in, secured with a little glue.

The layers have been popped up onto a card front of patterned paper using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares..  This in turn has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base also using Canvas Corp patterned paper and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
