Commissioned Birthday Card


A customer wanted a card for her nephew who loves animals so I turned to Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew CD.  I decided to go for this German Shepherd image and have simply distressed the matching backing paper and mounted it up onto various layers of different hues of brown (yes they are all brown - no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get the mucky brown coloured one to photograph with the camera) and added a sentiment so it could fit in with the CD Sunday Challenge of no embellishments - yikes that certainly was a challenge!!!

This card also fits the following challenges:

Cards for Men - Anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything goes
Fab n Funky - Keep it clean and simple
CRAFT - Monotone 
Crafty Emma - Chocolate Caramel - I decided to go for the colour tones that these two words imply.

What a great birthday card! Love the different brown hues - kind of like a German Shepherd has on their coat! Absolutely love the image - I have a German Shepherd myself named Misty Boo! Fabulous work! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Cards For Men. Hope you’ll be joining us for the next challenge.
