Celebrate with Riley!

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you're all doing very well. I haven't got the chance to make a card during daytime yesterday eventhough t'was my ME day. Instead, I finished some chores and I went out to buy something from the shop. Hubby actually asked me to make a birthday card for his workmate, Len to hand it out to him on Friday (today). Well, of course I said yes. But to tell you honestly, I really struggle when it comes to masculine cards. That's why, I have finished this card at 2am because I took advantage of the peace and quiet of the wee hours so I can make my creative juice flowing for this one. lol! Another thing is, I don't have that much stamps. moreso, I don't have any stamp that can be used for male cards. So, I reviewed all stamped images that were given to me as RAK and my eyes lit up upon seeing this Riley Tractor (or Farmer Riley) given to me by my SBS sister, Kathy.

Here's my finished card:

I never knew that I have this dp all along together with those not-commonly-used dp's of mine. And I thought it would perfectly fit this masculine card so I used it with Green Galore, Choc Chip and an unknown yellow cs. I did some paper piercing here which I rarely do but what's the easiest embellishment can I use for a male card other than piercing? :) I coloured my image with Prismacolor pencils and did a bit of sponging in the sky but I guess it was too light to be seen.
DH is at work right now and most probably he's already handed it to his workmate. Hope he likes it though. Now, I'm about to make a card for someone who's leaving abroad, he's the father of one of our churchmates who's here for a 3-month visit and is due to go back to Philippines tomorrow. I'm thinking of making a card (A4 size folded in half) so there will be a space for other church members to sign.
Will post it later once I'm done with it. For the's lunch time for me! :)
Happy stamping and have a blessed day!
