Allsorts DT challenge #154

Morning everyone,
Here we are again, another Saturday and that means another 
Allsorts challenge,
 hosted this week by my teamie Helene who wants to see you all make
 a card for a Man or Boy.

I made this card I while back for my uncle who was ill in hospital, he was in a coma for a few weeks but thankfully he's home now. I don't consider this card to be my usual style, whatever that is lol!, and I'm never very happy with male cards that I make but here it is:

I used BG paper to stamp the Whimsy postcard matted it with Kraft and distressed the edges. The sentiment is SU, stamped on more BG paper I think! The aperture was cut using Nesties lacey circles over several different layers and in different ways to create a frame. A couple of black gems and SU stitching and linen thread to finish. An easy card to make but I don't like the absence of flowers :(

The inside of the card, using SU paper and stitch stamp, and the stamps image is from Kaiserkraft.

Head over to Allsorts for all the details of the challenge and my fab teamies inspiration, I may be back tomorrow or Monday with a card I'm working on at the moment, it all depends how well I get on, in the meantime enjoy your weekend and I hope it's sunny where you are like it is here, yippee!
