A commissioned birthday card

I had a request for a birthday card by a lady who has commissioned me now for two or three years to make a card for her husband - the thing is that she tends to ask for the same sort of thing every time and I'm running out of ideas of something different. She wants it to include a Bible and some flowers.

I found the image on the internet, mounted it on the sentiment paper and on to a piece of striped Craftwork cards vintage rose paper, generating the sentiments on computer.

I know that it's unusual to use pink for a man's card, but I liked the pink flowers in the picture, so thought I would continue the theme - and the gentleman who will receive the card loves flowers.

This is for:

Sentimental Sundays 59: masculine card
Bows n berries 7: masculine
Cupcake 146: boy, oh boy, oh boy ...
Incy wincy 98: masculine
Wags n whiskers 56: one for the boys
2 sisters 44: for a guy
Papertake: dads & lads
Creative Friday 46: black/white/pink
Glitter geeks 2: male


  1. Great card Hazel! A lot of thought has obviously gone into it and the recipient will love it, I'm sure.

    Thanks for joining in our challenge and good luck :).

  2. Such an unusual way to colour a man's card but you obviously know him well and have thought about what HE would like mainly than the steotypical type. It is beautiful.
