Simply Male

Morning, you'll never guess, the suns out this morning, Yayyy!!!! There might be rain later but for the time being the suns rays are beaming in through the windows.
I've lots of jobs to do today but I thought I'd share an ultra quick card I made the other evening first. I had no time to colour up one of my fabulous LCI Teenager images,  so I had to resort to a couple of die cuts.
 


I couldn't believe my luck,I looked in my paper box and found a square of this gorgeous pearlescent black and white paper that I was to be addicted to a few years back. It's perfect for a bit of impact for a male card. It doesn't show up too well but the paper is matted onto foiled red card along with the embossed panel.
  

A bit of inky stitching to the star, a punched hole with a swing tag tied through and stamped with LCI stamp "Today" grounded with a spot of Pinflair Gel.  Three black eyelets and the inside decorated to reflect the front completes the card.


I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
PDS124, Embossing,
Crafts and Me 81, Embossing,
Waste Not Wednesday 16, Forgotten Stash,
DOC24, Die cuts and punches,
Lexis 63,Die cuts and punches.

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy Friday!
