Barry's Birthday

It's Barry's birthday on Sunday, so I made this card for him.
It's cased from a card that Chris (sis-in-law) had made.

Card open

Card closed

Arty farty angle
I tried to keep it masculine and not put any flowers on it !
Colour Combo is Baja Breeze, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.
Stamp set - Vintage Vogue, Just for you sentiment from Just Believe.
Happy Birthday from Curly Cute.
Top Note die used for Easel base.
Square Lattice Embossing folder used for bottom half of card front in Early Espresso.
Masculine knotted ribbon (rather than a girly bow) - and no added bling.
Hope that he likes it.
I would like to enter this into
