Birthday's for chaps, they always seem so hard!

Do you shy away from making cards for men?
Well I have no choice I'm afraid, because I have a whole house full! and last week my eldest son turned 22!
I can NOT believe that I am old enough to have a lad of that age, but sadly I definitely am!
So as he is quite a dapper young man I thought I would make him a card that reflected his love of smart clothes and made him this card!
I wanted to make the front of the card like a jacket and shirt!
The image is from Make it Crafty, and I used my Spectrum Alcohol markers to colour it as follows:
 Shirt BG1, pencil 055
Suit:BGR1, 2, 3 & 4
Tie: HB 1 & 3
Hat: IG1, 3 & 5
  Umbrella: GG1 & 3
Skin: CR3, FS3, CR1
Such a fun loving chap!

I also decorated the inside of the card with papers, and made it look similar to a jacket lining!
Sam loved his card, I hope you like it too and will give you inspiration for those tricky men's makes.
Happy Colouring
