For A Special Brother...Sketch Saturday Challenge

Enough of all that Marmite talk, I have a card to show today. I'll report back to you all later on in the week with my final LOVE IT or HATE IT results. My card is using this sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenge if you haven't visited them before then pop over it is a fabby challenge blog! I have used the sketch to make a card for my brothers birthday, I had the same age old card makers dilemma.........what to do for a mans card!!!! I am quite pleased with the results and he was over the moon so that's all that counts really! The image is Penny Black and the papers are from my stash......I couldn't see a name on them sorry! They are patterned one side and plain on the other. The buttons are Doodlebug and I have just used knotted string to make it look as though they are sewn onto the card. I have coloured the image with watercolour pencils and I have highlighted the balloon with some DB glitter. The "Happy Birthday@ is a rub on by Pebbles Inc, the "to a special" is an old Scrapbook House rub on and the "Brother" is made using Making Memories black Heidi alphabet rub ons. FOR SALE I have a Printing Press Cricut cartridge that I no longer need I am looking for £25 I will post recorded delivery free of charge in the UK. Paypal preferred, although cheques accepted. I hope you don't mind me popping this on here.
