Ribbon for Men DCM no.5

Can you believe it we are on to dare 5 already!!!! (7 if you count the little extras!)
Here is my offering. The design brief was to make any occasion card for a man & it had to have a piece of ribbon on it. Mine was sketched two days ago, it is a card for a friends' fiance. I almost forgot his birthday.
This card is made using brown parcel wrapping, a photocopied map of an area I love in the Lake District, Potter Tarn, Troutbeck, Ambleside (not the other Troutbeck higher up). The tags are from a card kit & I think it was Sarah Lugg. They are threaded onto deep chocolate brown ribbon down the side of the card.
Thought for a while there I would have to make a card for my imaginary boyfriend, though it will be Spencer Bear's birthday in a few weeks!!!!

Oh I like that one Paula!

I think, that as you're so good at this I might issue you with a secondary dare - a Man's card with PPPPPINK ribbon on it!

There you go - that's something for the weekend :-)

I hope this dare was gentle enough for your shattered nerves! All the trauma hasn't affected your card making - it is a fine one this week
