let pop a bottle!

Hi there!

Today I am here with a card that is for my father in laws birthday. Male cards are always hard and for this gent even harder as he defo doesnt like all the fancy bits and bobs!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Simply Magnolia- Anything goes
lovely hAnglar or sweet magnolia- Anything goes
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog- Ribbon or lace
Paradise of Magnolia- Show us your colours
The Ribbon Girl challenge blog- Sept challenge- Anything goes
All about Magnolia challenge blog- All about Doohickeys

This card I chose an Edwin of course as its a male bday card. This end I think is perfect for male celebrations and he looks so dapper. I coloured only part of this image...the hair and skin. I used Mr. Toms paper collection from Pion and paper pieced the outfit. Something I havent done in a long time but realised again how much fun it can be to do it. Note to self do more!

The dies....well 8 of them are from Magnolia...I do love a good die! The shape of the card is from Go Kreate and I cannot remember where the star hidden behind the cake is from.

The sentiment is from a La La Land Crafts stamp and goes so well with this...well it is a birthday!

The cake, the balloons, tags and the loopy die cut border are all embossed by a cuttlebug embossing folder which is a dotty one.

Around the die cuts I edged them all with Distress Ink.

The balloons string is twine.

Finally I added some gold glitter glue to the champagne bubbles and to Edwin's buttons and some blue rhinestones so the cake and balloons.

Hope you have a lovely weekend.
