Commissioned Birthday Card

 Oh sometimes the topics of my cards repeat themselves for my customers.  The repeating topics can be tigers, broomsticks (don't ask), trains and buses.  So yet again it was a customer's husband's birthday and requested a bus card.  I am married to a bus driver and am constantly surrounded by buses but I have exhausted all the photos my husband has taken at events/sheets I have bought so I had to buy another sheet from Crafts U Print.  The backing papers I used from Joanna Sheen's Thomas Kincade CD.  I printed out the sheet three times so I could do some extra layers and even put one on the back.  The card is finished off with a personalised insert, card candy, fibres and sentiment off the computer.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Anything goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT - Male theme
The Paper Variety - For the guys
Do You Stack Up? - Birthday
Shelly's Images - Anything goes

Little Claire's Designs - Cards for men
