Penny black Saturday! - Card for a Man



Wow! doesn't time fly - it's Saturday again and time to get the Penny Blacks out!! The theme is "Card for a Man" so I'm in xmas card mode again! and this is what I came up with:

The papers are all bits and pieces from last year, the image is coloured with watercolours and a wee bit of glossy accents on his red nose! Nesties to cut the scalloped circles and added stickles round the edges, the chipboard brackets I found lurking in my stash and have no idea how they got there!!! coloured the chipboard with dew drops and again added stickles to the edges. Sentiments and buttons were from my stash too. Added my little ticket coloured again with Dew Drops.

Dull and grey up here today (Nothing new there!) but not too cold. Hope you're all having better weather and have a nice weekend everyone!
