Birthday Card for a Special Friend

I always struggle making birthday cards for men, although this time I knew what I wanted to make.
I made this card for a special friend's husband.
The pattern is a224 and is available from Ann's Paper Art
Threads are Mettler Polysheen, 0150,0454, 0824, 2101.
A combination of 2 Spellbinder's have made a wonderful edge along the bottom of the card, E8-003 and E8-002.
Wellington embossed stickers sit perfectly in the centre of the card.
The sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley which I cut out with Nellie Snellen, mfd005.

I also have another card to make for a male this month, I will need to put my thinking cap on.

I enjoyed creating this special birthday card and I hope that you like it.

Thank-you for coming by and having a look.
