Penny Black Challenge


The challenge this week is to make a card for a man without using blue- so i went for one of my favourite tones- brown tones

The papers are Funky Hand papers and if anyone watched Anice on Ideal World on Thursday on one of her demonstrations you would have saw her cutting a wavy frame from the paper for her card so I copied this idea and cut a wavy frame from the checked paper and used a lighter tone for the inside.

I then doodled round the edges and cut a large sizzix tag in brown and stamped my little doggy stamp and again on the checked paper for his tie.

I die cut a beer glass and the word CHEERS and attached a Father sentiment and a few jewels
