60th Birthday Card

8" square

Daughter in Law asked for a card for her boss who will be 60 on Friday.



I did find it a bit of a job to keep it masculine. I find it much easier to make a girly card because I love to use lace and flowers and bling. Well!! all that was out so this has ended up quite plain.
The words are embossed with gold detail EP and the name CB'd and no.60 mounted on to one of the smaller 'label' nesties. I made the photo corners to match the label. The brown BP has also been run through the CB with the Swiss Dots folder. The ribbon is one from a mixture by Craft Essentials. Finished with a few punched leaves and a brad.
I have made a wrap from silver card with a printed greeting and tied with turquoise coloured ribbon.

Thank you for popping in and any comments you care to leave will be greatly appreciated.
