Male birthday

It's my son's birthday on the 23rd and I've made a variation of a card I made for one of my grandsons.

You can see that one HERE 'coz I'm blowed if I can find it here on my blog! LOL
It's disappeared!

I saw some gorgeous washi tape on Ebay the other week and bought three rolls that are really 'manly' and sumptuous.

I've used them on this card for my eldest son. 
Flippin' heck! He'll be 43!!! OUCH!

You can't really see how the gold shines on this tape.
(Maybe on the the last stripy one on the banner)?
The sentiment  is a Woodware 'Clear Magic' stamp, inked with SU's Chocolate Chip.
The base card is made from Kraft and I matted the ivory linen with Chocolate chip card.
Easy peezy, and quite sophisticated I reckon.

That's it for now folks.
Thanks for stopping by. I love your visits.
