Side Step Card

It is hubby's birthday tomorrow so thought I should make him a card, or if he's really lucky, maybe even 2!
It's the least I can do especially as he very kindly finances my crafty addiction ... and more importantly, NEVER complains!
Anyway, this card uses papers from CCSR The Big One and a slither of patterned paper from my scraps for contrast, all matted onto gold mirri card.
I wanted to try making a side step card just because it's a bit different from the norm and have to say I quite like it.
The cute image has been recycled from a recent birthday card but because it has a sepia look it was perfect to fit in with The Pink Elephant Challenge #27 which asks us to use Brown, Turquoise and Neutral. Is sepia neutral ??

Right ... better go and see what else I can conjure up for him before tomorrow.

hy ya babe nice to see you.

I wish I had thought of this on his Birthday. I wanted something a bit special but he ended up with none (shock horror) as i couldn't make my mind up (how bad is that!) he is so kind & yummy to me, also he never complains so I felt very guilty (made it up to him though) now yr card loving it very special I am sure he will be thrilled

love Dawn xx

How funny... I thought my brown/turquoise card would be perfect for my husband, too. You really sold me with the recycled image. Great work!


Love the shape of this card - very unusual and a great idea. Fabulous colour scheme too.
