I nearly gave up on this one ...

The number of times I put things on and took them off and altered what I was doing ... I nearly gave up on this one.

I chose the shaped card and covered it with Victoria & Albert paper - this is for:

I die cut the brown strips at the sides using the sizzix Tim Holtz alterations 'ornate' die. The friendship word paper is Sandylion. The nestie cut frame is K & Co and the piece with 'thinking of you' stamped is BG - a mixture, using up some scraps.

The colour combo is for Colour create 71: white, cream and brown.

This would work well for a male recipient, so it's also for:

Aud sentiments 29: for a male
Charisma cardz 21: boy oh boy
Simon says: for a male
Polka doodles 21: male theme

This is also for:

365 cards day 92: my favourite thing - CHOCOLATE!
Let's craft and create 20: dies to die for
Cardmakin mamas 21: use your scraps
