It's true, I don't know why, but making cards for men is harder. Your card, however, looks wonderful. I'm sure the recipient will love it.

Couldn't agree more May, men's cards ARE more difficult to make, because we always tend to put up too much maybe? But you've succeeded brilliantly, it's a gorgeous card! Ira x
