Happy 40th Birthday - Party Animal!

Hiya! Hope everyone's enjoying the slightly cooler weather now. I know I am!

This card is for my sister's Husband who's 40 this weekend. Happy birthday, Ty! The image is another one from Clare Curd's "It's a man's world" range and I love it! I've paper-pieced his t-shirt and coloured the rest using my promarkers. The papers are from the rich green collection from papermania which was the first pad of papers I ever bought - yeeeeears ago! I'm entering it into a challenge at Creative inspirations challenge blog which is to use the oldest thing in your stash :-) It's also being entered into Paperplay challenges: Your number's up and Creative inspirations: On the move, cos I think the chappie here is quite a nifty little mover!
I also had a go at decorating the inside of the card. This is the first time I've tried it so you'll have to let me know what you think.
I also just want to thank everyone for all the lovely comments I've received just lately. You're all so kind. I really do appreciate them. Thankyou!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx

Great card, Mel. I love the inside too - I'm one of those who never decorates the inside (too stingy with my papers!!!!).

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay this week.
