Card for a Gent

I was awake at really silly o'clock today with no hope of dropping off again - trouble is that it feels like elevenses time already and makes for a long day.  I had an idea for this card while I was eating breakfast so my next move was into the craft room while it was still fresh in my head.  The background paper is from a pad which has been in my stash forever and the other elements are various die cuts and a bit of computer work for the 'birthday' word.  Once the pieces were cut it was just a case of assembling them into this 'card for a gent'.  Details of dies below as usual and now I think I'm off for my mid-morning coffee (early) and then maybe onto some boring domestic jobs.

Face - Looking Dapper dies from Sizzix onto Sizzix heart die shape
Splat - Splatter die from Sizzix
Happy Word - brush alphabet lower case dies from Sizzix
Birthday Word - produced on the computer and cut out with scissors
Banner - die from Stampin' Up embossed with Sizzix cogs die
