Yesterday was my son's birthday, and along with the card that I made for myself and hubby to send him, I also make the card for my Father-in-law to send him. Sometimes this can be quite tricky, trying to come up with two very different cards, but this year with a little help from La Pashe and the Something for Everyone CD, I managed it. As my son works on saloon cars for racing, this one was Ideal. I started with a 7x7 card base and using silver mirri card for the matting, I printed out the backing papers and popped them onto the matting and then the card. I printed out the decoupage and layered it using glue gel, again this was put onto mirri card. I then made the sentiment on the PC and added it to the corner. I chose not to add any embellishments as I felt that it did not need any.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
The Male Room - Anything Goes
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes

Thanks for taking the time to look, and you kind comments which are always appreciated.

Another perfect card for your son Sue. I love a straight forward layout as it shows the papers and image so well. I think I might have to get this cd since I am always using the other La Pashe ones! Michelle x
