Cards For Men - Challenge 21, Happy Birthday!

It's time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men today and the theme is 'Happy Birthday'. What a lovely easy challenge ;-) Due to me having only half a brain in my head this week after all the goings on of last week, I have mucked up and not made a card with an image from our fab sponsor, Fresh Brewed Designs. I am so sorry :-(

Fresh Brewed Designs are sponsoring our challenge with a voucher to spend at their fab store. This is what the owner Heather Dennis has to say... Hi. I am Heather Dennis. I am a homeschooling mother of 2 wonderful children, the wife of 12 years to the love of my life, a Christian and the owner of Fresh Brewed Designs. I have loved to draw and create ever since I was a child. My daughter has inherited my love of art and recently inspired me to start creating again.All the images in my shop are hand drawn. I offer a wide range of images from coffee, cute and inspirational.I also love to create custom drawn images, so if you are looking for anything in particular, please feel free to drop me an email.

As always the DT have made some beautiful cards, please do pop across and have a peek and have a go at the challenge while you're there.

So onto my card, I have gone for clean & simple (and quick!) and used a gorgeous Lili of the Valley die cut square...
