Male Birthday Card

It was a chap's birthday at work last week and I made him a card.  He was an avid Haribo or any sweet eater - but now he's dieting - but he did find this A4 card fun.  I used my Robert Addams Sugar and Spice CD which I've had for some years but not used that often and did some faux pyromage cutting the image with my large curved rectangle Nestabilities dies.  I did some simple matting and layering and added some ribbon but then the card needed something else so I put some glossy accents on the yolks of the eggs throughout the card so when dry they felt just like the fried eggs you get in Haribo sweets.  The card went down a treat!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper pretties - Birthday card
Charisma Cardz - Boy oh boy!
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
2 Sisters - Anything goes
