Birthday card for daughter's boyfriend

Hi this is a card i made for my daughter's boyfriend ,he likes to play the guitar & the image pretty much looks like him.

I started off with a square card blank ,i used open office took the boy frame that i bought from the clipart fairy store it comes with the happy birthday greeting ,i then added this image mikey that i bought from charmed cards & crafts ,i just printed this out ,
I cut  it, coloured the image with promarkers & coloured pencils ,i have got to say i am no expert in colouring but i wish i was as some fellow crafters cards are just amazing due to their colouring skills .
Anyway all i did then was stick this onto my card blank and i added some green gems ,i also added a insert which i forgot to take a picture of. It didnt take long to make this card but i like it as i sometimes get stuck when it comes to male cards.

Birthday card for daughters to give to their gran

This is a card i made which you can get from the printable store at clipart fairy .
I printed it out followed the tutorial that is on the site on how to put it all together ,then i just added stickles around the frame which i think i spoiled a bit then i added ribbon with the gems on it  that i got from lidl  for  £ 1.99 ,they have several different kinds  to choose from . ,i stuck that to the inside so it would show through to the front of the card  and also used the same ribbon to the bottom of the card & made a bow to add to it but i missed out adding the part with the gems on it,i also added my own insert to it .
