Three Big Men

It's our Crafting Bee at Carol's today so I'm off to catch up with some crafting buddies and hopefully manage to produce something too.  This is a picture of what I put together at our last meet.  As I mentioned in a previous posting, Three Little Boys, I'm not very imaginative when it comes to making male cards, young or old, so when I find a design I like I batch make.  These three easel cards are for three uncles who have birthdays coming up in the next few months. 

The easel topper is a download from Craftsuprint and everything you need is on one sheet. Hopefully in the picture below you can see that the topper has been decoupaged using a camera eye design.  The bottle label and Aged to Perfection message was stamped from a set by WS Designs.  Along with the printed sheet I used black, wine and gold mirricard and the Happy Birthday backing paper is from a Cuddly Buddly download but printed in greyscale.  Inside each easel card is a personalised birthday greeting which was created on the computer and cut out using nestabilities. The easel stops are layered circles cut from the coloured cardstock using a nestabilities die.  Chain peeloffs were added to create a  bottle label chain.

I'd like to enter this card in the followng challenges

Thanks for reading
