How did it get so late so soon?

What do you do when you realise it’s someone’s birthday today and you don’t have a card made?  Reach for your go to image (1920’s Kody from Some Odd Girl is mine for male cards), crop it and go CAS, of course!

Now because I am not so flash with layouts I did take some time out to go find a suitable layout, it saved me time in the end as it took the guesswork out for me.  The current one at CAS on Sundays worked beautifully with my image and the need to crop (no time to colour a full image) although I did layer up the background papers to add some additional weight and interest to the card.

Now this card is both CAS and for a guy so I am entering it in the current challenge at Cardz for Guyz.  I’m also entering it in Stamping Sensations’ current challenge where the theme is also a male card.  And given all my white space on this card I’m also linking it up at AAA Cards in their bare naked CAS challenge.
