'Let's Party' over at Cards for Men

Here's my DT card for the second challenge (this year) over at Cards for Men.  The theme is Let's Party and this image from our sponsor, Meljen's Designs, says it all.  If you haven't visited Meljen's before, please pop over there now.  You won't be disappointed.

The main image is coloured with Prismacolours and blended with Sansador.  I've made an envelope-type card with a pull out message at the side.  I used Bazzill Basics (Berrylicious) for the base card and for the matting.  The design paper is Dovecraft - Birthday which I must have had for about two years and never used.  I can't believe it!  I've made a pull-out tag which you can see in the picture at the bottom of the post.  Again I've used my Prismas to colour in.  The Ribbon is a fab one from Crafty Ribbons.  I think this will really suit a young boy for a birthday (I might keep it for my youngest's birthday in March - he'll be 3!)

Pop over to the main post where you'll find out more about our wonderful sponsor and get to see more ideas from the rest of the Design Team.
