This weeks challenge at Papertake Weekly is ‘Hello Boys’

Father's Day is just around the corner so we want to see any 'male' cards or projects …easy as that


I used one of the new Vintage Backgrounds on my card and this one is Clocks & Cogs (try saying that a few times quickly!!)



PTW 11 - Hello Boys



I don’t usually decorate the middles of my cards but I was quite pleased with this. I used one of the new Art Pads from Lili of the Valley, these images are so great for a quick card when you don’t have time to colour

I cut out the bag from a second sheet and put that in the middle



 Golfer middle



Golfer middle 2



I went a bit mad with the Frantage but I love the stuff, it adds such a great extra dimension to your card

Other supplies are Bazzill craft card, Walnut Stain distress ink and from The Ribbon Girl I’ve used button twine and jute mesh ribbon

The alphabet letters are a stamp set from Craftwork Cards




Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by
