Masculine Birthday Card for Colour Q Challenge

January 13, 2016
   I have quite a few birthdays in January & February. The majority of them are for the males in my family. I always find this the most difficult card to make. However, when I purchased the Make It Market Birthday Pop Up kit last April, I promised myself that this year all the recipients would get some version of this kit. When I saw the colors for this week's challenge at Colour Q I though they would make a perfect masculine card.

I just used a tad of silver on my card embossing the balloons' strings and bow. I should have embossed the little tab too instead of stamping that in black.






I am submitting my card to the challenge at Casology  where the cue word is:




Lifting the tab, the recipient opens the card cover to reveal a special message.





Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
