thank you guys! so pleased to read your comments :)
I think everybody is agree that it's difficult to make cards for men but if you know well the person it's a bit easier to do))) So I often use magazines' scraps to personalize my gifts.
The first card has pretty colours.
So sweet !
oh, just saw the second card. i agree with craft nerd! awesome manly card, even down to the use of raffia for the bow.
I like how you used the same doily but created two totally different effects. The first card is very pretty. And the second is a great masculine birthday card.
