Fabulous card Nic a great image, colours and design for a male card, you always seem to make these look so easy I really struggle with them, your designs are perfection. I am so glad that you have reverted back to the 'pop up' commenting I don't have to keep going in and out which was a bit difficult with blogger playing up. I really hope that he has sorted himself out this time.
