Dear Sir...

Hi hi,

My easel card today is one for the boys (big boys).

Over at the Saturated Canary challenge blog the theme is "Read All About It".  Can you guess which book inspired this card?  Heeheee....
Now I've started the hubby to reading 50 Shades.  It's our 11th anniversary this Saturday and I have something special planned.  However, I'm a little scared to give him this card now, since he's reading the book.  Too suggestive perhaps.  Yes, can't have him thinking funny ideas.

The image is one of Krista Smith's called Grey Tie and coloured with copics.  She's got to be the sexiest digi I've ever seen.
For the layout I followed a sketch from Simon Says Stamp.  Their current challenge is a sketch challenge which is ending very soon.  Better hurry up with this post.
The Sentiment reads "Dear Sir..." embellished with a heart paperclip.  Edges of all layers are sponged with Aged Mahogany and black.  Card is finished off with some black satin and sheer organza ribbon, and a handcuff charm.

This is what the card looks like closed.
So what do you think? Give him the card? Nah...
Well I'm glad you all got to see this card because after this, its staying in the drawer.
Hope you liked it and thanks for stopping by.
