take me to your...*BAKER*! :)

is it just me or are "guy cards" harder to make than "girl cards"??! naaaaaaaah, i think they really ARE more difficult, especially if you are an embellishment junkie like me: afterall, there are seemingly infinite ways to smother a "girl card" with flowers and rhinestones (to which i say "HOORAY!") but for guys you need an actual idea... (lol!) ...and since i don't "do" mushy, for me that generally means a joke of some kind. anyway, i am fairly proud of this one since it came together quite quickly AND looked very much like the picture in my head.
(i just *love* when that happens!)

(patterned paper: bam pop, scrapbook wizard; glossy cardstock: ranger; alphas: autumn leaves (rubs); basic grey (stickers); other: sakura glimmer pen, zig writer, colorbox inks, foam tape)
