Commissioned Birthday Card

Sorry I've been missing this week.  I had my dental surgery on Tuesday.  It wasn't pleasant and I'm glad it's over with.  I've still only got about a third sensation back in my mouth so I can barely say "yes", "no" etc so it's a bit of peace and quiet for hubby and the boys.  Not back to work until next Wednesday so plenty of time for my face to be less swollen and to be able to talk!!

I was asked to make a humorous 40th birthday card for a customer as her brother was turning 40.  I thought a CraftsUPrint image I had seen by Gordon Fraser would do the trick.  I also purchased a Happy 40th Birthday image for the front of the card from CraftsUPrint as well - well there was going to be no hiding for recipient in the fact that he has turned 40!!!  I just did some simple matting and layering as I wanted the images and verse to do the talking.  The customer loved it.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Dream Valley - For that special guy
The Crafty Pad - Let's hear it for the boys
Craft Your Passion - Anything goes
Make my Monday - Father's Day/Masculine
The Pink Elephant - Masculine
