The Results Are In...


I'm back again with a card full of PTI goodness to share with you today!

The title of this post is the very reason why I had to make yet another masculine card (I've had to make way more than my fair share of 'em!)

Chris' (my long-term-dunno-how-he-puts-up-with-me bf) brother received his super A-Level results. He got all the grades he needed to get into his first choice of University so we'll all really happy for him! Cue the congratulatory card.....

Now I don't want to suggest that I have a favourite PTI set (for fear of upsetting my others - they have feelings too y'know!) but Star Prints really is an amazing set to have on hand for when I'm asked to make a card and my mind goes blank! I really like the fun bold colours to celebrate - I don't think it's too girly is it? I confess I managed to sneak some ribbon and paper piercing on it - I couldn't resist (Tee Hee!)

As part of my kick-start for this card, I based it on this Mojo sketch:
Well I hope you like it! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful bank holiday weekend - mine is gonna be busy with my own little (or not so little as he towers above me!) brother's birthday along with a BBQ, and a night out with friends. What are the chances of rain?! I have the feeling it's gonna be soggy sausages for me LOL!

Just wonderful! I am in love with Star Prints too, I can't seem to put it down, it has earned a permanent spot on my craft desk!!

Great masculine card! I think the colors definitely keep it from feeling too girly (even with the ribbon and piercing). : ) And having the flourishes in circles -- that's so clever!
