Brian's Birthday

Here is a card I've made for my friend Brian who is 50 next week. Goodness knows why I've been friends with him for over 30 years, as his nickname for me is Thunder Thighs ! (Not very accurate these days though, I'm pleased to say.)

Unusually for me this card does not involve any stamping and is a different take on a gap card. I used some new papers, (glitter and the patterned paper is one not used before from a Kirsty Wiseman CD.) so I am entering it in the following challenges.

Cupcake Craft Challenges - Something New
One Stop Craft Challenge - Card for a male
TotallyPaperCrafts - Happy Birthday
Craft Your Days Away Challenge - Anything goes

Hope you like it and thank you for all the lovely comments you left on my last post.
