Without further ado, here's my card

It's a napkin fold card. I apologise for the photo quality but 
the lighting was poor!
The colours look a bit off but they are actually really nice!
I see my folds are not quite as crisp as they could be either! lol
The base is made using a sheet of 12 x 12 double sided design paper.
This particular paper came from Lidl!
I use their plain craft paper a lot for matting & layering.
The quality is quite good & it's great value!
The wrap to hold it together is cut from a sheet of plain paper, 
just a little bit bigger than A4 & is secured at the back with DST 
I then tied two strands of bakers twine(pink & green) 
around & finished with a bow.

This is the card open! Eyegor is reavealed!
You may notice I'm really keeping to the Pink theme for October, 
Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Did you know that men get Breast Cancer too?
300 men per year are diagnosed in the UK alone!

Here's a bit of a closer look!
I coloured the image with Promarkers & matted him onto a layer of silver mirror card 
then another pink design paper from Southfields
Another silver layer, then the white is actually a square card blank!
I wanted to do it that way so I could write the greeting inside!

An even closer look at Eyegor the handsome devil that he is!
I printed the sentiment directly underneath. The font I used is Jack Lantern BB
& you can download it for free here

This pic is of the other side of the DP & The base of the card!
I took the inspiration for this card from my new friends over at
 The Crafty Bloggers network on Facebook!
