You Rock My World

I made this birthday card for a couple challenges.  Yesterday as soon as I saw the sketch at Cards for Men Challenge #13 I knew I wanted to use it.  I have quite a few birthdays coming up in July so I thought I better get started.  Come to think about it, I think they are all guys/boys.  My BFF has three of her boy's birthdays coming up in July and all in a row. I guess Oct was a very "ACTIVE" *wink* *wink* month for her.   LOL. 

I ended up turning the sketch on it's side but I think it all turned out great.   The color combo I took from The Corrosive Challenge #69.  It is to use Black and White then add one other color.  Incy Wincy Designs Challenge #47 wanted us to incorporate Music into our card.  It's funny how I have a mental inventory of everything I own.  I can tell you if I have a certain kind of paper or if I have that stamp you could use.  So when I was putting this card together I just knew I had paper with music on it.  Sure enough with a little digging I found it, and the background was black so it was meant to be.  Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #2 asked us to use ribbon as a border.  I can't believe I found the perfect color orange to match everything but there it is.  Even though this card will be for a guy it is ok to put ribbon on  it - Right?  It's not a girly thing is it?  Well last but not least Polka Doodles Week #24 Challenge is to make a card for a man/guy.  Got that covered.

I sure do hope anybody that stops by enjoys my cards as much as I enjoy making them and mostly giving them. 

Have a wonderful Tuesday.
