This year, I decided to change that habit. And as my sister is a huge fan of Mrs. Agatha Christie and Hercule Poirot, I decided to use this theme for a birthday card. I've cut out his silhouette from brown cardboard and made a white-and-brown easel card. I finished the card with a couple of roses and a line saying "Use your little grey cells".
Still, I wasn't sure whether to be happy with the card or not. Mostly, I was concerned about the card looking a little too boring or too guy-ish for a girl, but my sister absolutely loved it and I guess that means it can't be that bad :)
