Hubby's Birthday on Halloween.

Hi Everyone,

Well  here we are.  A potential long weekend here in Melbourne.  The running of the Melbourne Cup (Horse race) is on Tuesday and it is a public holiday. The lucky ones take off Monday and  Friday afternoon and go away for the weekend.  It is quite warm today.  There is however, lots of rain forecast for tomorrow.  I have made a card for hubby. His birthday is on the 31st. Yes Halloween.  Although we did not grow up celebrating Halloween, I have added in some Halloween colours. I find it really hard to do male cards.   Hubby would like to think that the long weekend is because it is his birthday.  The photo on the card is of course of Hubby when he was young and cute.

I thought I would enter this card in the Cards for Men challenge blog. Their theme is Anything goes this time, as long as the card is for a boy or man.

The card was made with the following

Ribbon:   Stampin Up  Chocolate Chip wide ribbon. (Don't think it is available anymore)
Buttons:   Green ones are from Stampin Up.  The orange ones are from my stash
Paper:     Kraft cardstock, Chocolate Chip cardstock, Stampin Up Dsp and Creative Memories paper.

Have a great long weekend to those lucky enough to have the days off. Have a great weekend to everyone else.
