Woman of your Dreams?

I had the idea for this card a while ago and only just got round to making it. I love the three sided cards I have seen at Jules and Kerry's blogs and thought it would make an excellent idea for my BIL birthday. I used 2 6x6 card blanks and stuck them together to form a three sided card. I have folded it differently as I wanted the inner image to be hidden. I used images from Kenny K and Bugaboo and the sentiments are computer generated using Bookworm font. My BIL's favourite colour is yellow so had to use that on the card, summer driggs to the rescue as all the yellow's I thought of were to babyish for a 28 year old.

The finished card with all three sides showing. The other side is a collage of the ticket we bought him for his present, thank goodness for tickets via email you can print multiple times.

The woman of his dreams complete with yellow bikini and glossy accented sunglasses. Decided on red hair as it seemed to go best with the yellow.

And finally the joke I just hope he likes it too.

Images: Kenny K and Bugaboo
Card: Craft Work grey paper pad - love this pad and wish I had bought more now.
