Quixotic Challenge # 15 - One For the Boys......

Hi everyone!
YAAAAYYYY! It's Friday already and I'm so looking forward to a nice chillaxing weekend ;o)

My card has been made for this week's Quixotic Challenge where the theme is boys...... are you groaning, lol? Come on, you know you love making male cards!!! As I've said recently I quite enjoy the challenge of making these cards now and with less embellies available I think the focus has to be on the image and papers!

I've used paper from the Basic Grey Eerie collection, not just for Halloween you see! I bought it from Elaine's store Quixotic Paperie. My image is George from the Dottie and George collection over at Charmed Cards. This card is for a work colleague of mine and the sentiment has been computer generated..... now you must be wondering why I'm saying 'Happy Birthday You Punk'..... I can assure you it's a term of endearment in this case, I promise, lol! It's just the way we greet each other on a day to day basis.... in fact it's pretty mild compared to some of the things we say, hee hee!

Thanks to everyone who left some amazing comments on my last card, I was so flattered and glad you liked what I did especially as I haven't tried the crackle effect before!

Have a fantastic weekend.....

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
