It's Time To celebrate - A Dreaded Man Card

Hi there!

First I have to say Happy Birthday to my dear husband. Not that he reads the blog, but I thought I would mentioned it anyway!  No, this card is not for him. He is receiving another DMC (Dreaded Man Card). :-)

My card stash is mostly full of pretty pink girly cards, and I have nothing for guys! I refuse to buy a card when I can make one, so I need to stock up! So as my post title states I have a Masculine card today. I have dubbed my masculine collection on the ol' blog as Dreaded Man Cards. (DMC). I love who I make them for, but dread not making them fussy, so I struggle. 

Here we go!
I started with a Kraft card base. I added some "not so girly" papers from my stash to the card front. On a tag I stamped the cuckoo clock image from Hero Arts - Cuckoo. I also used Versamark ink to add clocks to the background of the tag.  The sentiment is from the same set.
I embellished with some buttons from Craftpon Etsy shop (Items 10000188 and 10000148

That's it short and sweet and hopefully will make one of the men in my life happy! :-)))

I am joining in at:  Papercraft Star- Inspiration (clocks)
The Shabby Tea Room - Inspiration Clocks
 Paper Playtime - 3 Papers, 3 Girl Jam - Celebrations, A Blog Name Hero - Button It

I hope you have a blessed day!

I LOVE your DMC! That clock image is FAB as well as your colors and design! LOVE that you snuck some buttons on you DMC. Maybe the "man" receiving this won't notice the girly touch! THX for playing with us at Papercraft Star!
