Blokey Birthday Card…?

Ok….so it has a little glitter on it!  Some men like that…don’t they? 
I was lucky enough to win a recent prize draw at a Blue Jelly Stampin' event so I have my first set of SU stamps….and what better sentiment to use on a blokey card Smile.
3 Squares
I made this card especially for the challenge over on "Less is More", but it fits the bill for the Coffee and Cream challenge on the Simon Says Challenge too.

The images are from Pink Petticoat and I’ve coloured them with my alcohol ink pens.  I’ve topped the cakes of with a bit of glitter…et voila.  I nearly over did it with the bling….but suddenly remember what  a friend’s boyfriend said recently “Blokes don’t really care about the card”.
Well, I’m choosing to believe that some do !!Smile

Let me know what you think.  Thanks for reading…
