Male Birthday

Today I have a card to show that I have made for my Brother-in-law who has just turned the big "50"
He is great fun and has a good sense of humour so I knew he would like this card...what man wouldn't!

I would like to enter it into a challenge

Crafts and Me Challenges#41 Birthdays - ends 5th July
Cards For Men # 14 Wild West

I used my lovely Promarkers to do these shades of brown on a Kenny K image. The tasseled piece going across the back was from punching a border with a Martha Stewart edger then snipping along the opposite edge. I didn't have any sentiments to fit so I made up my own!
I hope you like as my brother-in-law did!
