Cheers! A Masculine birthday card....

Woohoo, it's Friday - finally! What a long week it's been (for me anyway) and I am hoping to have some relaxing "me time" over the weekend, which may involve some crafting too... we'll see!

Back to the reason you came here today! I hear from so many people that they really struggle to make male/masculine cards, but I rise to the challenge, and sometimes I get it right and other times it's back to the drawing board.... and last week it was a friends birthday, so I made this card, come and have a look....
I have always loved punch art (making images with punches) and it's a great way to use up any scrap pieces of card stock! When I saw this on Pinterest I just had to give it a go. I really liked the way it turned out,  and my friend texted me to say he loved it too - what a result!
