Don't you just love it when you find something special that you need for a card - in this case paper for a guy card.  As you are scrounging through your stuff, searching, you come across a set of paper you bought, put away and forgot about!  You see it and BINGO, it all falls into place!!!  Well, this is exactly what happened today with this card.  I had the stamp all picked out and then thought, uh oh, what paper can I use?  This is for my SIL's birthday.  He is a total hot rod and classic car guy, he builds and restores them for a living.  Some of the cars he's done are so beautiful, they're like a work of art.  I sure hope he enjoys this as much as I enjoyed making it.

The paper is by COLORBOK, one of their "patterned paper packs" and I think the title is " Kiss".  I colored it with my Prisma's and Gamsol, a silver metallic pen and added the rhinestones.  I know it's for a guy, but hey, it's for a "King" so why not!  The banner and car are raised with pop dots.  On the inside it says, "Today and Always!  Happy Birthday".

  3. Lovin the chrome job you gave this beast and I think the gems sort of enhance what is likely a high-sheen paint job, right? Fab card, wanted to say lovely but that is not appropriate for a MAN CARD!!! I hope all is well with you!!
