The dreaded male card!!!

I don't know where the time goes, another awol stint from me!
In all honesty a lot of it has been enjoying the lovely weather we've been having, me and OH had our first trip to the beach and then a family bbq this weekend, lovely! Also lots of projects happening in the garden - a greenhouse, a mini 'patio' for the garden swing and a raised vegetable bed - so exciting!
BUT - I am back today to share another quick card!

My Dad asked me to make him a last minute card for a clients birthday lunch he had been invited to. I make no secret that like many other crafters this is a style of card I find very hard to create but I would not be defeated lol!

Here is the card:
Headache time - no idea what colour or theme to use, do I have any suitable male style images?
Right, stash rummage for inspiration!

Aha! Found a box of these thick cardboard patterned tags that I bought in £land. About a dozen on a sheet so they are great vale for money and they come in lots of different sizes/styles in the same colour palette. Also they have glitter, ribbon, brads on them so are half embellished for you!

Used my Fruit Smoothie Sizzix alphabet to make the 80, added an 'M' brad for personalisation & layered this onto a large scallop square nestie.
Another tag for the lil greeting topper (which I matted onto some green card) a ribbon thread one this time. Added 2 star brads to finish and ta-daa! Sucess!TFL, Ni :) x
