As promised, here is the 50th birthday card I made for the boss at work. It's always a challenge (for me, anyhow) to come up with good 'masculine' cards since I usually do 'pretty' things. LOL I think this worked out quite well.
I'm glad I got to use the burlap... I've had it for a while and never seem to find a use for it. I also used the '5' and '0' from the Heidi Swapp collection of pre-cut numbers. The metal clip and stars also seem more 'manly'. The store we work in, sells lots of wood products and burlap so I think these were a good choice.
You have to challenge yourself from time to time, to keep the creativity flowing. I hope you find some time to be creative too. :D
I love to scrapbook, make cards and other handmade paper 'stuff'.
