How to: celebrate the coal miner's B'day

This week is going to be a M&M week - male & monochrome LOL
Today I would like to share a B'day card I made for my Brother-in-law.
You wouldn't guess - he's a coal miner! LOL I found THIS free coloring page and I was so happy, because it's not so easy to find such image. It's colored with Promarkers.
Yesterday I went to a haberdashery wholesale magazine (my Mum shops there very often, as she sews quite a lot), so I bought some wonderful embellishments, which are much cheaper there. All these chains, ribbons, laces, buttons and 1001 more items can make you dizzy LOL I've spend my whole salary there much more than I planned there.
The sentiment says 'Best B'day wishes' and it's a freebie from HERE.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Hi, I am unable to accept this entry into our BLACK AND WHITE challenge, because it is plainly much more than simple black and white. This is what our challenge requirements were stated as 'Black and White will be the only colours allowed, apart from flesh colours for skin and normal hair colours, but no other colours should be visible', sadly there is a lot of gold/yellow/brown involved in this card.
