Operation: Man Card in a House of Pink

Happy Thursday everyone!

So, Operation: Man Card was much more difficult than I anticipated.  It's kind of funny really because this card is as 'plain-jane' as they come so you'll probably laugh at the fact it took me so long to decide what to do!  (It's ok, I was laughing at myself!)  

The card is for my brother-in-law who moved to AZ for work late last year.  I have pictures of my girls I need to send him so I thought it would be fun to whip up a card for him.  HA!  There wasn't much 'whippin' up' going on.  Let me just say that it is really hard for me to make a card with no 1) ribbon 2) sparkle 3) heck, anything related to girls!  I think it could have used twine or something, but I didn't have any on-hand so I just made do with what I could find at the moment. 

Here it is:

  The lighting is kind of wonky, but the colors all match perfectly. 

I don't think it turned out *that* bad.  For my first Man-Card, I think it worked and if you knew my brother-in-law....the plain-ness (is that a word?) fits him perfectly.

I have another project almost done and it is so super cute (and really special)...hopefully I can post that later today :).
