A Manly Birthday

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share a card I made for my soon to be father-in-law. He has a birthday this week and every year I have the need to top the previous year's card...I know this is proving to be challenging now. But I think I may have done that! I found this really funny card on Pinterest that had this funny face made from a huge mustache on the front...Pick a 'Stache anyone?!? Yes I immediately went to work, but I wasn't a huge fan of the first card (I gave to another male last week for his birthday and forgot to take pictures first). I knew I could do better...

Well what do you think?!? I embossed my Pick a 'Stache with white embossing powder to hint that he is getting old (we'll see if he picks up on that one ;) ). The glasses were all too fitting as he wears glasses and yes at one point he had ones this big! They were a free SVG I picked up from Oh My Crafts and last but not least the little sentiment is from Mustache Mania. The paper is from Hambly screen prints and quite shiny (a pain in the behind to photograph that's for sure!)

Well that's all from me today, happy crafting!
