Birthday Card for Him

Happy Sunday Everyone!

It is first Sunday of the month, time for a new card challenge at
The Ribbon Girl Challenge. The theme is ~ Birthday.

I made a couple of birthday cards using the same layout,
one for my husband and the other for my dad.
The layout is from Fussy and Fancy's current sketch challenge.

The image below is Put Your Feet Up from LOTV. I've colored it with DIs.
It is perfect for my hubby as he loves watching TV. He normally puts his feet up
and has a cup of tea beside him on the floor just like this cute image.

The second card is for my dad, He had just celebrated his 81st birthday last weekend.
The image is a postcard cut out from Pion Design Paper For Father Collection.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
Natural and brown button twine, white Gutermann top stitching thread,
30mm zig zag white cotton lace, 55mm Hessian ribbon,
25mm faux Hessian ribbon, blue tiny Ric-Rac ribbon.

DPs: Pion Design For Father and Studio of Memories Collection
Dies: Memory Box, Tim Holtz, SU

You can see more of the DT creations at The Ribbon Girl Challenge.
We would love it if can join in the fun creating.

Thanks so much for stopping by and wish you a lovely day.


I wish to enter these cards in the following challenges:

These cards are beautiful. I'm sure your hubby and your dad will love them! The image you used on the card for your hubby is awesome and I think it's perfect for many men (I can name quite a few myself).
Fab work! Hugs! xx
