It is a fantastic card, Nic, love the layout, papers and black and white, looks fabulous! And I think it is great for a man and not too girly at all. There was a KK challenge a few months ago - something for a man- and I used the sexy Vivienne, seemed perfect to me! Hugs Delphine xx

I don't see why it shouldn't work for a man - I can see where your coming from! Fab card too - you really do do shading so well!! If you're worried at all - why not add a cheekier sentiment i.e. To my hubby on his birthday - for one day only, your wish is my command (LOL!) Marie xx
