Masculine Card...and a few more challenges

The Cupcake Craft Challenge blog asked for a man or boy card this week. It happened to come just in time!! A friend of mine recently asked me to make her a card for a 50th Birthday party - as luck would have it - for a guy!!

The card is very similar to the card I did for last week's Cupcake Challenge, which was numbers and you can see that card on THIS POST. This time I skipped the embossed back panel, as the card is for a 50 year old man - and although I love the other card, I was thinking it was more for a child (IMO anyway!)

It also hits the blue, green & white challenge at the Pink Elephant as well as the blue & green challenge at Color Create! So this will be a second card for both of those challenges!

And that's it for this one! But don't forget to check out the BLOG CANDY on THIS POST!!
