This is a card that I made for my Father-in-law's birthday!  I always find it a challenge to make cards for men - its hard to resist flowers, bows, pearls and lacy things! I used my Mr. Gullible rubber stamp image I illustrated for Whimsy Stamps.  
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Fab n' Funky: Opposites Attract (opposite colours - mine are orange and blue)
Stamp and Create: Birthday (this is a birthday card for my FIL)
Our Creative Corner: Forgotten Things - I haven't used my embossing folders in ages!

Thanks for stopping by! 
God bless you!
