Ger's birthday

Today is my Brother-in-law Ger's birthday and I have made him this card.
I am really pleased with it.
I was inspired by something similar on Pinterest (what would we do without it!!)

The colour combo is basically Crumb Cake and Soft Suede on a White base card -
in retrospect I should have done it on cream or Very Vanilla.
That said - it doesn't look wrong.
The Crumb Cake panel is textured with the Textured Impressions Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
I think this is really suitable for men's cards .
The narrow borders were punched with Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and cut in half.
The pennants are cut freehand from some Mocha Morning DSP - now retired.
and the old faithful sentiment from Curly Cute stamp set.
Name is die cut with the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Medium Sizzlits Dies
(also now retired - but it is a useful size!)
Happy Birthday Ger!!  Have a great day!
