Card for a Beer Monster ...

... actually, he's more of a "Red Wine Monster" than a Beer Monster but I couldn't find a digi suitable!

This card is a quick and easy one for my OH whose birthday is soon.  He never looks at my blog so there's no problem posting this before his birthday.  And as I type, he is far too interested in the magical world of Harry Potter, killing death eaters and finding horcrux's (via his PS3) to even notice that I've just made his card just a few feet away from him!  A typical chill-out Bank Holiday in my house - me crafting, him on the PS3.  We tend not to go out on Bank Holidays as it is too busy everywhere.

Anyway, the papers I've used are from a Kay & Co pad and the digi (from Pollycraft) has been coloured with pro markers.  I've kept the embellishments simple and just hand cut a star, added a button and a bit of baker's twine.  The sentiment stamp is from Hot Off the Press.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Challenge up your life - Something for a man
