Whiff of Joy challenge #66

My sister asked me if I could make a card for a male friend of her who's turning 26 today 26. She needed the card yesterday and asked she asked me tuesday night (talk about last minute!!)

Now, you have to know that making a card for a man isn't something I like to do (that's putting it mildly, lol!) and I don't think I'm good at it and then, to top it all off I lost my mojo! So I decided I'd wait 'till wednesday to make the card.

Good thing I did too, cuz wednesday morning I received my WOJ order and 'Cool Oakley' came to the rescue!! I ordered some stamps that were on my wishlist for quite some time now and three of stamps of the new 'City Girls' collection, I love LOVE LOVE this new collection!! Oh, and I just saw on Katharina's blog that I've won a stamp called 'Willow with champagne' she is one of the 2 I didn't order, so I'm soooo happy that I won her, now I only have one more 'City Girl' on my wish list!! WOOHOOOOOO... Thank you so much Katharina, you rock girl!!

All right, enough of my babbling, and on to the card, lol!
My sister picked up the card and she loved it, thank goodness. Hopefully her friend will too!

I used this weeks sketch on the 'Whiff of Joy challenge' blog for my card!

Ik vind het ook best moeilijk om mannenkaarten te maken(vooral als ik vooral graag met roze werk, haha), maar jouw kaart is heel erg mooi!
