Masculine Card

I don't often make 'manly' cards but made this one with some down loadable images from a CD-ROM and some die cuts that I already had.  I added some dimension with layers and used glossy accents to make the hat and watch face shiny.

It was therapeutic to make the card as I have had a four day migraine which is now receding.  Immersing oneself in a project is a good way to forget other problems.

You've really done a fine job. Do you realize what a natural you are at card making?
Sorry to hear about your migraine. Unfortunately, I know exactly what those are like. Glad it's lifted and you're feeling better.

It works well with layers. I know what you mean when say it can be therapeutic. I hope you have recovered the migraine and wish you a happy Easter!
