Everybody Art Challenge # 75 - Blue and Brown.......


Good morning everyone!
Here's a card I've made for a male friend celebrating his 40th birthday...... there are quite a few of us in my group of friends turning 40 this year..... me included, EEEEKKK!

I'm entering the card into the latest Everybody Art Challenge where the theme this week is blue and brown, perfect for a man's card. I also think the easel shape makes a male card a bit more interesting when you can't overload with too many embellishments.

I picked one of Mo's fantastic images because I wanted to emphasize the old age thing, hee hee! He was such great fun to colour in with my Poly pencils. The papers are Basic Grey and the sentiment is a Penny Black stamp.

Well I hope you all have a nice day today...... it's a bit chilly again so wrap up warm if you're out and about!!!

Catch you later then......

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

I wish Mo would make all of her images into stamps. Sometimes my printer does a good job sometimes it doesn't. But you my friend did a fabulous job! What a wonderful guy card. It is stunning!
